Once again, Richard Schmid reveals his virtuoso oil-painting techniques as he appplies his brush to landscape in this companion volume to Richard Schmid Paints the Figure. Schmid captures the essence of a landscape with an expressiveness and spontaneity entirely his own, translating his methods into advanced professional instruction for the painter. The basic materials and tools necessary in landscape painting are discussed first: brushes, palette knives, grounds, paints, varnishes, mediums, as well as suggestions for special outdoor equipment. Next, in a chapter on landscape elements and techniques, the author offers valuable information on color, composition, edges, values, optical aids, perspective, outdoor light, local phenomena, and subject matter. Then, in a series of eight fully illustrated step-by-step demonstrations, the author shows how to use the standard, impressionistic, opaque, and transparent block-in; how to handle a full-value and a simple monochrome wash; how to create a direct painting; and, finally, how to render a full-colortransparent block-in. The book concludes with a gallery of Schmid's most impressive landscapes, illustrating the techniques explained in the demonstrations and accompanied by a detailed description of how each picture was completed.
