In this collection of resources on landscape, artist Hester Berry encourages “looking and discovering, browsing and daydreaming”. She discusses the work of other landscape artists, both historical and contemporary and encourages you to go out and record your impressions and experiences of the landscape in all its forms: “urban scenes, the country-side, inner-city green spaces and even the sky”.
The series begins with suggestions for how to keep a sketchbook followed by exercises in drawing and painting.
