With a lifetime of teaching, some 25 books and several TV series and videos behind him, Alwyn is pretty much the granddaddy of art instruction. It’s no accident that his books have all been bestsellers or that he was one of Daler Rowney’s most popular demonstrators. Alwyn can not only walk the walk, he can tell you how he does it, too.
All of which preamble says that this is a book you’re going to want. It’s slightly less technical than some of the other volumes in the series and there’s always a sense that you’re seeing ideas in practice rather than just in theory. There are more demonstration pages here, too.
The subject matter is pretty much confined to landscapes because Alwyn never tries to work outside what he knows best. He still finds room for tips on skies, trees, water, people, boats and everything else you’d expect from him.
