Alwyn and June Crawshaw guide you through a complete course of more than 40 step-by-step demonstrations of landscape paintings done on location.
All landscape painters like to paint directly from nature and in this exciting new book Alwyn and June Crawshaw show the reader how to deal with every aspect of painting outdoors with more than 40 step-by-step demonstrations.
An original and unusual feature of 'Alwyn and June Crawshaw's Outdoor Painting Course 'is that the demonstrations are all painted and photographed outside on location, whatever the weather! In this way, the reader can see exactly how experienced painters like Alwyn and June overcome the problems of painting outdoors.
Outdoor painting brings a special dimension to an artist's work – whether you paint a masterpiece 'en plein air', or just do quick pencil or watercolour sketches on the spot, you will have experienced the joy of observing and recording your surroundings and the satisfaction of taking a lasting memento back home with you.
The book is divided into different sections, each dealing with a popular aspect of landscape painting:
• Coping with changing light
• Working with greens
• Painting trees and water
• Creating atmosphere
• Painting open spaces
• Working in a hot climate
• Sketching people
• Painting complicated scenes
Alwyn and June's paintings – in both watercolour and oils – feature landscapes from around the world: Great Britain, France, Italy, Spain and the Bahamas, and many useful pencil sketches are also included. Alwyn and June paint in quite different styles and the comparisons are both interesting and instructive, making this an invaluable, practical course for the landscape painter.
Alwyn Crawshaw has made seven popular TV series for Channel 4: 'A Brush with Art, Crawshaw Paints on Holiday, Crawshaw Paints Oils, Crawshaw's Watercolour Studio, Crawshaw Paints Acrylics, Crawshaw's Sketching & Drawing Course 'and, his most recent, 'Crawshaw Paints Constable Country', all with accompanying best-selling books. His wife, June, has featured in three of these television series alongside Alwyn and together, the Crawshaws are known and loved by millions of amateur painters, or would-be painters, everywhere.
Alwyn is also author of eight books in the HarperCollins 'Learn to Paint' series, as well as several hardback art instruction books, the most successful being 'Alwyn Crawshaw's Watercolour Painting Course.' A new edition of Alwyn's autobiography, 'The Artist at Work' was published in 1996. June's first book, 'Waterclour Made Easy, ' was published in 1995.
In addition to lecturing to art groups and societies, June and Alwyn run popular painting holidays and courses. Alwyn is a regular contributor to the 'Leisure Painter' magazine and other art magazines, and has made numerous videos on painting.
