" As this is one of only a few treatments of painting skies in oils, it is a real pleasure to report that it is very well done, to the point of being a bit of a showstopper. Structurally, there are examples, discussions, exercises and demonstrations that make the book utterly complete. "

" If you want to paint skies you won't find a better guide than this! The sheer scope of the book means that it won't be a quick read, but the breadth and depth of the coverage mean that you're unlikely to find yourself wanting more. If you paint skies, you need this book, maybe even if you don't paint in oils! "

" This is easily the best book on its subject, probably ever. If you were to combine the spirits of John Constable and JMW Turner, perhaps with a dash of Edward Seago thrown in, I'm not sure you could better it. The extent of the coverage is breath-taking. "
