Capture the beauty of a landscape with this easy-to-use guide to drawing. Step-by-step instructions lead you through all the drawing and composition techniques you need to get started, across a range of predominantly monochrome media that include pencils, charcoal, inks and pens. There is a comprehensive guide to tools, materials and equipment, and tips on putting together an outdoor kit, choosing a view, capturing the essential elements of the scene, and linking the land, sea and sky. A gallery of inspiring works from other artists and an image bank of copyright-free photography mean you can get started straight away.

  • Reviews: 
    You’ll see how much I like these books. Imaginatively produced and well illustrated, they offer a great deal of information in a compact space and earlier volumes have sold in, well, volume. Now that the media titles have been disposed of, the editors are moving to subjects and this new title offers a huge variety of images and techniques and covers pretty well all the drawing media in both black, tone and colour. None of the titles in the series follows exactly the same format inside, rather following whats suitable for the matter in hand. Here, you start with a section on media and marks, essential for the beginner, but maybe one to skip through for the more experienced artist. The bulk of the book is then taken up with a series of techniques and tutorials that introduce shapes, tonal values, colour, perspective and so on. Just about every type of landscape (including townscapes) and landscape features is covered and there are more in the gallery section and the very handy photo gallery that provides real-life images for your own interpretation (another neat and original touch). –ArtBookReview.net
  • One of the strengths of this series is that the individual titles do not follow exactly the same format inside but take what is suitable for the subject matter.

  • The latest in the popular “Bible” series is a series of tutorials designed to get you drawing and painting landscapes. This is more a book on drawing than painting, and the first chapter introduces you to the world of making your mark, whether with crayons, pastels, pencils, brush and wash or felt tip pens. Discover how your camera is a useful tool, gaze at a gallery showing what it looks like when it is done by professionals and then get down to learning the basics. Tutorials include perspective, composition, painting skies, trees and urban landscapes to name a few. In grand Search Press tradition this is a sensible, user-friendly primer to use, blessed with a spiral back which opens out flat for ease of use. I was impressed by the way it starts by looking at a photograph, showing how to make a drawing of it with a squared grid and then concentrating on the theme of the tutorial, the text sounding in my head like a teacher taking the sort of lesson you can actually learn from. I wish I had had a book like this when I started drawing – a worthy addition to a fine series. –Rachel Hyde, MyShelf.com

  • This very aptly named book would make a perfect present for anyone who would like to draw landscapes. There is a terrific amount in this book from the basics of equipment and painting techniques, to tutorials of various scenes, and galleries – snow, shadows, streams etc. It finishes with a photo directory to help with the realism aspect of landscapes. –Cake Craft & Decoration, July 08
