Paint the charm of country scenes

These tranquil scenes let you create your very own painter's retreat with a luminous sunset, a quiet cottage, a refreshing coastline and peaceful streams meandering past mills. It's easy and fun when you paint along with Dorothy Dent .

With 10 step-by-step projects, suitable for both beginners and more accomplished painters, Dorothy shares her easy-to-follow techniques for painting realistic landscapes. Learn how to paint:

Rich autumn foliage The vivid greens of spring Colorful reflections found in still water Glowing light from a window on a starry night Snow-capped mountains created with a palette knife

You'll also learn valuable principles such as consistent highlights and shadows, how to contrast lights and darks and how to use textures, colors and values. Dorothy shows you exactly how to hold the brush and position the bristles against the canvas so you can make confident brushstrokes. Each painting also features a special Seeing with the Artist's Eye section that teaches you the artistic principles that take a painting from average to extraordinary.
