Although Coastal Landscapes is aimed at those who already have some experience in painting, much of the book will also be of interest and value to beginners. This well–structured course covers all the practical aspects of watercolor, pastel, and oil painting, as well as composition, painting on site, and evoking atmosphere and light. Throughout, there are numerous practical exercises, not only highlighting key points but also enabling students to monitor their progress.
