About this book

The sea and sky have captured the attention of artists for centuries. Their energy and drama, or their tranquility and beauty, can be portrayed powerfully and magnificently in a painting. This encouraging and user-friendly book gives practical advice on how to set about sea and sky painting, and explains what to look for in capturing space and movement, colour and light.

Peter Rush has always been drawn to the sky and sea. After many years of working as an illustrator for the BBC's Jackanory, he now specializes in painting skies and seas, often en plein air or from the relative comfort of his camper van.
