  • Creative clouds and skies

In a special section, Claudia covers basic texturing techniques with mini demos using lines, dots, bruising, scribbling, spattering, blotting, printing, stamping and more. From paints and pens to sponges, leaves and facial tissue, you'll explore all kinds of fun and inventive ways to create amazing textures.

And to help you put it all together, Claudia includes her masterful advice for creating compositions using reference photos, field sketches and your own creative license. Each demonstration features a large image of the completed landscape, so you can see exactly how Claudia's methods work - from start to finish.

Do not buy this book for an e-reader - it has been incorrectly transferred and it is impossible to read most of the pages even on a 22" computer monitor. Needs to be re-digitised properly. Can't comment on the content because I can't read it.
