This comprehensive guide will tell you all you need to know about creating a sense of time and place in landscape painting.

As John Constable said, “no two days are alike, nor even two hours” and Fraser (a former SAA Artist of The Year) demonstrates all the techniques as well as many of the tricks that you can use to create a vivid sense of the here and now in your work.

In landscapes and townscapes, Fraser demonstrates ways of handling skies, lighting, distance and foregrounds as well as vegetation and structures. Very usefully, he also shows you how lighting varies throughout the year as well as the day, concluding with a handy section on Reflections On The Year that sums up the book's theme.

A comprehensive series of exercises and demonstrations will develop your skills in every aspect of landscape painting and the book is also full of hints, tips and enlarged details. Helpfully, many of the illustrations are photographed in a raking light that clearly shows the texture and brushwork.

Practical touches include advice on working in different conditions, a look at perspective and tips on finishing your work, including varnishing and framing.

This is a substantial book that deals with its subject in depth, but remains entirely practical and comprehensible at every step.
