Book Description

Let Jerry teach you how to Master Landscapes

You can master landscape painting with the help of popular painter Jerry Yarnell. In Landscape Painting Secrets, Jerry explores the different areas of landscape painting that often create problems for beginning and intermediate artists. All of the major landscape elements are covered—from rocks, dirt roads and grass to still and moving water to atmospheric conditions like rainbows, falling snow, storm clouds and lightning.

Dozens of thumbnail studies break each element down step by step with clear instructions and photographs so no stroke is uncertain. These individual studies let you practice and explore new techniques without the worry of ruining a complete painting. Once you've mastered the techniques, Jerry will help you apply what you've learned in three complete landscape scenes that include detailed instructions and photographs. Grab your paints and brushes and get started today!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource November 18, 2008
Format:Paperback
I found this book to be very helpful in understanding how landscapes are created. I have over the years purchased numerous books on painting landscapes, and this book by far excedes them all. He gives detailed instruction in his lessons. I appreciated his thorough explanation of the colors he used. Since watching his show on t-v and reading his books, I have gained a new perspective on painting and an enthusiasm that I've never had before. Acrylics are fun, and exciting. I think he did a great job with this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exellant instruction book September 15, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a welcome addition to my collection of Yarnell books. I have every book Jerry Yarnell has published and have used them all when I paint. Mr. Yarnell has an easy approach to complex problems and the fact that he also provides instructional DVD's for the paintings is great. I would highly recommend his books for every painter from beginner to advanced.

This book gives detailed instructions for painting basic landscape elements in an easy-to-use format. Yarnell's use of a limited palette along with a short supply list make his techniques not only attainable but affordable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended May 11, 2009
Format:Paperback
I own several of Jerry's books and enjoy all of them. His teaching method provides a sequential, one-step-at-a-time outline of the main steps involved in creating a finished work of art.

His method is especially beneficial in helping us amateur artists plan and structure our work (which never quite ends up looking like Jerry's). We learn to plan the work in stages rather than approach a painting as a free-form exercise. The originality (supposedly) emerges within the structure.

The writing that accompanies the illustrations is extremely well-written. It represents interesting technical writing at its best.

Any aspiring landscape artist will find this book to be worth its weight in gold. I have turned to its informative pages again and again, and I highly recommend the book to others.

5.0 out of 5 stars very helpful book September 1, 2009
By S. Cook
Format:Paperback
I have found this book to be very helpful. There are several thumbnail studies that teach how to paint a better landscape using acrylic paints. The ones on tress and snow are really good. My trees and snow now look better. There is a little section where he talks about terms and what they mean and how to do them, such as: double loading and how to do it; dabbing and how to do it; negative space example. My negative space is not very good but now that I understand what it is I can work on it. Also there is a color wheel chart which I have referred to many times for the complements and graying colors. Also he lists how to mix the colors for the thumbnail studies. I have really enjoyed this book and of the books that I have bought recently on painting and drawing this is my favorite.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best February 11, 2010
By Katie C
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have bought several books by Jerry Yarnell. His book on landscape secrets is the best of the lot. Detail instructions on the various aspects of nature--weeds, grass, bushes, trees, ect , are layed out clearly with illusrations. The information on stone walls and sand was excellent and most helpful for me. I also enjoyed his explanation on painting wood ,such as would be used as a post in a fence.

All of his books have projects ( pictures ) with how to steps to follow . This is a nice feature but I want to paint pictures of my chooseing I needed some guidance with specific areas. All of Mr. Yarnell;s books are helpful but by far his Landscape Painting Secrets is the best :) I find myself reaching for it time after time .
