    The Two Styles of 18th Century Landscape Art There were, then, two main styles of landscape which had the approval of the eighteenth-century arbiter of taste, the classical and British Landscape Watercolors book Dutch. Whatever his faults he had a distinct personality, and with Samuel Palmer, the water-colour painter, carried on the peculiar feeling of early nineteenth-century romanticism almost to the end of the century. He worked mainly in body-colour water-colour mixed with whiteand his subjects were chiefly still life of fruit and flowers as well as rustic scenes with figures. Further, his drawings are not conceived primarily in line, to which tone and colour are added. The inspiration of several of his contemporaries, notably Crome, Turner, and Girtin, is to be seen in his work, but whatever he drew from others he transformed to an individual expression.

    Another form of pot-boiling, the illustration of books of travel and archeology, also occupied much of Cotman's time. The vigour of Gainsborough and the breadth of Cozens find echoes in British Landscape Watercolors book drawings, but these qualities became, as it were, naturalized in him, and it is useless to look in the work of others for qualities which were his own. The remaining painters of the Norwich school belong to an altogether lower category. There are three main problems with using reference photographs: Values are exagerated Color is miss-represented white balance Depth of field is not how a human eye sees Charles Reid Watercolors In contrast with Paul Jackson's watercolors, here are Charles Reid watercolors, another one of famous watercolor artists. It was an age of great drawing-masters, and the very fact that their living depended on their teaching rather than their painting may have given them independence of outlook.

The immediate result of Turner's influence was not great, and his few imitators are of small account. They were, moreover, apt illustrations of the new literary notion of the Sublime, especially as expressed by Edmund Burke in his influential essay on that subject. No other painter, unless it be Jean-Francois Millet, has conveyed so well the friendly strength of the earth and the things that grow from it. Topographical Landscapes Before Richard Wilson, there had been no English landscape-painter of much note, and accordingly there was a further prejudice in favour of the works of foreigners against which he had to fight.

And, strangely enough, his large canvas of Welsh mountains has more than a bit of Bierstadt in it as far as its Rocky Mountain-like grandeur of scale and dramatic lighting go.

The majority of paints sold today are in collapsible small metal tubes in standard sizes and formulated to a consistency similar to toothpaste by being already mixed with a certain water component.

His method of developing the watercolor painting in stages, starting with large, vague color areas established on wet paper, then refining the image through a sequence of washes British Landscape Watercolors book glazes, permitted him to produce large numbers of paintings British Landscape Watercolors book "workshop efficiency" and made him a multimillionaire, partly by sales from his personal art gallery, the first of its kind.

The book totals about pages so it should keep you busy reading and painting for a while. Some vestiges of earlier convention remain even in his latest work, and, though the range of his colour was so much amplified, he never became entirely naturalistic in this respect. Flames shoot up from behind an embankment, illuminating some horses and figures on the right and a pool of water in the foreground.

The show sags a little in the townscape division, which, unavoidably it seems, is too much ''after'' Canaletto, and the catalogue, also, is flawed -by the confusing arrangement of illustrations, by an index too stingy to be of any real use and by the absence of biographies.

Turner and John Constable He never travelled abroad and his mind was filled with the beauty of common things.

Botanical illustrations became popular during the Renaissance, both as hand-tinted woodblock illustrations in books or broadsheets British Landscape Watercolors book as tinted ink drawings on vellum or paper. British Landscape Watercolors book Martin has a place of his own.

Certainly, the Constable of ''Hadleigh Castle,'' both the finished work of and its preliminary sketch, is more recognizable than he is in the nocturnal scene just described. On the other hand, for ease of use and consistent quality, the rest of us can gladly leave British Landscape Watercolors book craft of paint making to the professionals, some with centuries of experience, so we can concentrate on the creation of art.

The oils with which his glazes were diluted have yellowed with time, and consequently these touches, having lost their sparkle, tend to give rather a fussy appearance to many of his finished pictures. Artists had to formulate, prepare and grind their own watercolor paint and tended to keep their secret recipes and methods to themselves.

Nearly all later nineteenth-century landscape-painting derives something from Constable's example, but his outlook and methods have been more intensely studied and developed in France than in England.

Yet despite their modest aim, quiet colour, and timid draughtsmanship, these artists have a reticent charm which is worth looking for. In this account, the first original native painter was Hogarth, and the first genre to be distinctively British was landscape painting.
