About this deal

Kuo Hsi (Chinese: 郭熙; pinyin: Guō Xī), Clearing Autumn Skies over Mountains and Valleys, Northern Song dynasty c. Margaret then guides you carefully through each stage of six stunning projects, each culminating in a beautiful landscape drawing you'll be proud of. Indeed the loss of young men is one of her themes, from the medieval stained glass in Little Malvern Priory which can be seen in the foreground of the second drawing (the only contemporary portrait of the young Edward V) to the tomb of Prince Arthur in Worcester Cathedral.

However, the outsides of the wings of a triptych by Gerard David, dated to "about 1510-15", are the earliest from the Low Countries, and possibly in Europe.

The baton then passed to France where, in the hands of the impressionists, landscape painting became the vehicle for a revolution in Western painting (modern art) and the traditional hierarchy of the genres collapsed. Most Dutch landscapes were relatively small, but landscapes in Flemish Baroque painting, still usually peopled, were often very large, above all in the series of works that Peter Paul Rubens painted for his own houses. Indeed, certain styles were so popular that they became formulas that could be copied again and again. The tip of the lead can be used for fine marks but keep in mind that filing it again on the sandpaper may be needed if further broad strokes are required within the drawing or sketch.

You wouldn’t start building a house with no foundations or prior plans and drawings, it’s the same when planning a painting. The genre expanded to include urban and industrial landscapes, and artists began to use less traditional media in the creation of landscape works. He was known for creating simple yet striking landscapes and is credited as being the originator of the 18th century British landscape school.In the 18th century, watercolour painting, mostly of landscapes, became an English specialty, with both a buoyant market for professional works, and a large number of amateur painters, many following the popular systems found in the books of Alexander Cozens and others. The word "landscape" entered the modern English language as landskip (variously spelt), an anglicization of the Dutch landschap, around the start of the 17th century, purely as a term for works of art, with its first use as a word for a painting in 1598. With patience, practice, and an understanding of tonal values, you’ll be amazed at how quickly you can create captivating landscapes that evoke a sense of depth and atmosphere.

It is hard to get the feeling of Spring without colour and most of my sketches were done in watercolour – apart from the one above where I forgot to take a water brush with me.

Landscapes were idealized, mostly reflecting a pastoral ideal drawn from classical poetry which was first fully expressed by Giorgione and the young Titian, and remained associated above all with hilly wooded Italian landscape, which was depicted by artists from Northern Europe who had never visited Italy, just as plain-dwelling literati in China and Japan painted vertiginous mountains. So, pick up your pencil, gather some reference images or venture out into nature, and start experimenting with these basic drawing techniques. One of the most popular subject areas for any artist, creating landscapes is a fundamental part of learning to draw. Depending on where you lay the horizon, you can either see more from the sky or more from the ground on the drawing.

The frescos of figures at work or play in front of a background of dense trees in the Palace of the Popes, Avignon are probably a unique survival of what was a common subject. Aerial landscapes depict a surface or ground from above, especially as seen from an airplane or spacecraft.It is a guide to the entire process, including getting to grips with representing different types of landscape, seascape and cityscape, learning about the materials and concepts such as perspective and composition, and experimenting with different techniques to accomplish a range of effects.

The artist known as "Hand G", probably one of the Van Eyck brothers, was especially successful in reproducing effects of light and in a natural-seeming progression from the foreground to the distant view.
