This well-illustrated guide covers all aspects of painting coastlines and seascapes in oils--a challenge to even the most accomplished artists. Written by a prominent member of Cornwall's St. Ives Society of Artists, it ranges from suggestions for preliminary methods and composition to a complete demonstration in five steps.
Additional topics include differences in color of the sea and wave forms, cliffs and island rocks, open sea painting, beach scenes, clouds over the sea, and creating moonlight effects. More than 70 illustrations, chosen for their technical and analytic value, complement the text.
