Painting abstract landscapes 

By Kate Reeve-Edwards and Gareth Edwards 

 

Abstract landscape painting expresses emotion while still capturing the essence of a landscape.


This compelling book explores this suggestive style first developed by Turner. Using the hauntingly-beautiful paintings of Gareth Edwards, it explores the technical, historical and psychological dimensions of Abstract Landscape Painting to help you develop your own skilful and intensely personal approach. It is a unique and exciting book into this under-documented genre.

  • Learn about how to begin an abstract landscape painting, using chance application

  • Understand how to ‘manage accidents’ to create innovative pieces of work

  • Discover the importance of effective composition and how this navigates the viewer’s journey

  • Determine the importance of the ‘invisible’ elements of painting: the unspoken value of the viewer and the influence of ‘looking’

  • Reveal how to utilize a convergence
    of linear and atmospheric perspective to help your viewer traverse the picture plane

  • Understand the importance of light, space, colour, and tone in generating evocative paintings

  • Be more demanding of your surface, using textural techniques and glazing to achieve professional production values
