Learn how the sea and sky interact in nature, and how to portray their many moods. There is ample information on oil paints and on techniques such as tonal underpainting, as well as general painting advice on colour, tone and composition. Then there is specific information on sea painting, from aspects of beaches to painting rocks to swells, foam bursts, waves, spray, mass foam, linear form patterns, submerged detail and shorelines.

Roy explains how to paint cloudy, summer, stormy and evening and night skies, before examining light, reflections, mood and atmosphere. All this invaluable expertise is brought together in two highly accomplished sea and sky paintings, demonstrated step by step.

About the Author
It was the love of the sea that inspired Cornish born artist Roy Lang to capture the oceans movement, lights and moods, and this is certainly reflected in his paintings.

He was voted artist of the year in 2000 and 2002 by the SAA, and has had his work exhibited in the Mall Galleries, the Wildlife and Wetlands Trust Slimbridge, the Flavel Dartmouth and various other galleries in the UK.

He demonstrates for art societies and other groups throughout the UK and provides tuition to individuals and groups.
