An invaluable guide to seascapes and painting and sketching the sea.
Covering the many moods, shapes and patterns of the sea and the coast, and written by a prominent member of Cornwall's St. Ives Society of Artists, this book is a guide to practical techniques and applications in a range of different approaches to seascapes. It covers in depth areas including composition, colour, beach scenes, clouds, moonlight, foam patterns, rock patterns, aspects of lighting of the scene, and even practical elements such as choice of posture and setup for painting out of doors and in the landscape.
Illustrations and examples include rocks at Lands End, Zennor cliffs, St Ives, sunsets, clouds over the sea, some typical colour palettes (fully pictured) and much more, all with an engaging and informative text and many examples of the artist's work. 

More than 70 colour and black-and-white illustrations in total.
