From the Introduction

Landscapes can be among the most difficult things for any artist to capture. It doesn’t matter whether the medium is oils, acrylics, watercolor, pastel or colored pencils. Nor does the style matter very much. There’s simply so many possibilities in every scene, that an artist can quickly become overwhelmed.

Colored pencils opened a whole new world for me. Everything became a potential subject, and I do mean everything. I even tried a landscape or two, but didn’t get serious about drawing landscapes until 2012.

Since then, I’ve completed a number of landscape drawings on a number of papers and using different methods. The more I do, the better I get. The better my landscapes turn out, the more landscapes I want to do.

But it still takes time to finish a colored pencil drawing of any size. So I began experimenting with water soluble colored pencils. They’re a great way to lay down color fairly quickly, so you can to get to the “real drawing” more quickly.
That’s what this eBook is all about.
