    3. I got a serious rush of happiness the day this The Elements of Landscape Oil Painting showed up on my doorstep! For intermediate level artists, this is a wonderful resource for taking paintings to the next level. Each section explores an element of the landscape in depth, then provides several step by step examples. The author goes over strategies for rendering skies, water, earth, and trees, then puts them all together in the final chapter. I like her methodical approach to painting and her pat [...]

    4. "The Elements of Landscape Oil Painting" is a "how-to" instruction book for oil painters who want to improve their landscape painting. The author broke the process down into the most basic steps, like closely looking at the subject, the different types of brush strokes used to make different textures, and choosing toned grounds that enhance the colors used over it. Since she went into detail before the demonstrations, I found them more useful than art books where it's more the artist vaguely exp [...]

    5. The Elements of landscape Oil Painting by Suzanne Brooker is very nicely written to help understand how to use oil paints and create wonderful landscape designs, such as the ones you see out doors. I think that Suzanne did a great job explaining everything from tools you'll use, how to use them, and most of all about oil painting. I really always use watercolor or acrylic paints, so to learn more about oil painting was something that really interested me.The book, is very detailed and illustrate [...]

    6. Good Material for Beginners and More Advanced PaintersThe first thing I noticed about this book is the skillful use of paintings to illustrate the points being made. This starts in the Foreword where Lundin uses his own paintings to illustrate how painting is a process of molding the picture until you've achieved the effect you want. Booker follows up on this theme in her use of demonstration paintings to illustrate the concepts she's presenting. For the beginner, the first chapter is a tutorial [...]

    7. Meant for the intermediate painter, this book talks through the various elements contained in landscape painting, how to do them and how to fix specific problems. Everything from water to clouds are discussed, with helpful step by step photos.This is a different type of book than I usually get, and I have to admit that I didn't read it cover to cover, though I did glance through the part I didn't read. The reason I chose this book is because I have recently taken up oil painting, and since I'm b [...]

    8. The Elements of landscape oil Painting is a helpful tool for an oil painter, Suzanne Brooker is able to explain things that not every art author could. The pictures in this book seem to be very one tone. The choice of colors that the artist is not something that I am very fond of. The book takes concepts and breaks it down into easier steps. Overall a great book that would be helpful for many painters. This book is wonderful, my mother (who is an artist) loves this book and would recommend this [...]

    9. Whilst I do a little painting, I have always steered clear of landscapes- everything looks so flat. With this book I think I will venture into the realms of the outside. Why? Because this book explains it in steps - not a now do this and copy this - but it actually give you the tools to look at a landscape and plan it, It explains about depth, condensing a landscape onto a canvas, colour and brushstrokes. I don't know if I will achieve a masterpiece but at least I am itching to try - I have a wh [...]

    10. There is a wealth of information in this book for artists of various levels of experience. Some information is intended for a novice and can be skipped over by more advanced artists. In particular the instruction of different brush stroke types seems too specific to allow artistic freedom of expression. What I found helpful was the analysis of the different elements of the landscape that would help an artist sort out and define the complexity of nature into simpler shapes. It was well worth read [...]

    11. Unfortunately, there is not much substance to this book on landscape painting. Brookner writes about ways to See the landscape, but I would like to have had more concrete discussion of painting what you see. I think she tried, but got sidetracked by the variety of paint hues available from various paint manufacturers. Do I really need "red umber?" and many other paints mentioned? No, but they would be fun to try.

    12. Inspiring in relationship to use of color and techniques for oil painting although I will use some of the techniques for acrylic painting.
