Landscapes. Betsy Hosegood. New York: Watson-Guptill Publications (800-451-1741), 1999, Illus., softcover, 176 pp., $29.95.

This book represents a celebration of landscape painting as seen through the eyes and hands of 14 artists who differ greatly in their choice of styles and media. While many books already exist on this subject, Landscapes allows artists to explain what motivates them, how they achieve their intentions, what techniques they employ, how they approach composition, and discusses and illustrates each artist's personal color palette and mixing approaches. Inviting page layouts, brilliant color reproductions, and the personalized sharing of ideas and approaches by professional artists make this book a worthwhile acquisition for students and experienced artists alike.
