Roy Lang shows you how to capture the power, majesty and atmosphere of the sea. Learn how the sea and sky interact in nature, and how to portray their many moods in oils. Detailed sections on light and atmosphere provide ideal starting points for the beginner, while many hints and tips are provided throughout for any level of artist. The book also contains two step-by-step demonstrations that explain in simple terms how to paint the sea and sky in oils.
Roy Lang writes 'I do not consider my self to be an artist; rather someone who has learnt to portray its moods, colours and movements with paint on canvas.' Despite opting out of art at school at the age of thirteen, Roy started painting again in his late thirties while out of work. His understanding of the sea, mainly gleaned from angling in his youth, made up for his lack of any formal training in art. He now travels, giving demonstrations and workshops; and lives in the south-west of England.
