Painting Towns & Cities

Aimed at those who wish to paint urban scenes, this book covers the basics of materials, equipment, perspective and composition, and goes on to discuss the variety of light, colour and texture to be found in any town or city. It offers advice on portraying, in watercolour, oils and acrylics, the character and atmosphere of a place as they change according to weather, season and time of day, and the author explains how he set out to capture the essence of Vancouver (Canada), Cambridge (England) and Boston (USA) on painting visits to those three places. He also discusses the different techniques and styles of a gallery of other artists who specialize in townscapes.
