From the serenity of a color-streaked evening sky to the breaking light of a new day to the misty grayness after a rain shower, the ever changing sky dictates the whole mood and feeling of landscape painting. Master watercolorist Ron Ranson demonstrates how to capture the sky and improve the quality of your paintings, using a palette of only seven colors. He explains how to use a camera as a tool and photographs as a source to keep your work fresh, immediate, and spontaneous. A colorful gallery of finished paintings illustrates the results of the various techniques, and Ranson's constant enthusiasm provides plenty of encouragement. From clouds to sunlight to weather conditions, by successfully interpreting the beauty of the sky you will create more effective paintings every time you put brush to paper. A Selection of F&W's North Light Book Club. Studio Vista 128 pages (all in color), 8 3/4 x 10 7/8.

A prolific author of how-to-paint books, Ranson has created a valuable work on a topic that is, at best, treated as only a chapter elsewhere. Skies are often neglected by nonprofessional artists or are done quickly in one of a few repeated patterns. Ranson, who has painted skies from Norway to Borneo, begins with an excellent photo-essay that will change the way most artists perceive this part of their paintings. From golden sunlight through the darkness and drama of storms to haze and varieties of fog, examples teach the reader to use observation of the sky to add depth and richness to landscapes. Ranson brings considerable talent and enthusiasm to this highly recommended title.
