There are many books on how to paint. Some are good, some are terrible. The best way to learn how to paint is by painting and looking at good paintings. Study them carefully. One type of book to study that is imperative is a book on perspective. Lerning perspective can much easily be accomplished by reading it in book form than studying it in the field. It involves the painting of not only things like roads but everything you paint; the trees in a forest, the rocks on the shore, and the clouds in the sky. It is of the utmost importance to know and understand perspective no matter what type of painting you are doing.
