With Painting Romantic Landscapes anyone can learn how to paint lovely, rural landscapes. Eleven step-by-step projects, ranging from beginner to advanced, guide artists through acrylic painting techniques that are sure to capture the natural beauty of their surroundings. Sharon shows readers how to render the basics of landscape painting, including skies, mountains, trees, wildflowers, streams, waterfalls, reflections and more. Next, she provides guidelines for portraying even finer details such as a horse and buggy, barns, farmhouses, deer and bunnies. Each project captures the look and feel of a different season - from autumn foliage and snow-covered pines to a sunny summer garden. Complete, detailed drawings and traceable patterns are also included.
