About this book

Landscapes have been the subject of myriad masterpieces by great artists for centuries. Now anyone can bring scenic landscapes to life in vibrant color with this delightful trace-and-color guide. Inside, six detailed templates are provided to help the beginning artist get started with a line drawing that they can color or paint in the medium of their choice. Artists can simply transfer the template line drawings to paper or canvas with the included graphite paper. Then, using the color references and tips in the book, they can add color and create their own landscape masterpiece!

Landscapes: Trace Line Art onto Paper or Canvas, and Color or Paint Your Own Masterpieces includes 32 pages of instruction and inspiration, providing basic information about color theory, as well as an introduction to several different color mediums – colored pencil, oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, and marker. The overview for each medium covers the essential tools and materials an artist may need, including what types of paper or canvas can be used and any other special materials, as well as how to use various techniques to achieve effects. From serene water scenes to lush countryside, art enthusiasts will find everything they need to create their own landscape artwork. Includes six removable templates featuring detailed landscape artwork and four reusable sheets of graphite paper for transferring.
