Winter, says David, isn't a time to put your painting equipment away!

Even if you don't fancy going out like Monet in three overcoats and with a portable heater, there are alternatives. Modern all-weather clothing is very light and quick-drying and you also have the option of using photographs or sheltering in the car while you make a quick sketch.

This is a book that, as you'd expect from David, is full of practical advice, hints, tips and demonstrations. It begins in autumn as the colours start to fade and views become more open. Greens mute, browns start to predominate and distant views open up as the leaves fall.

With the advance of winter, the crisper air becomes clearer and the hazes that accompany warmth retreat. Blues lighten and skies need more grey and less crimson. Outlines sharpen and recession can become less noticeable. Frost and ice add highlights to foregrounds.
And then, just as the days have shortened and the deep cold has set in, the first promises of spring start to appear. David's final chapter welcomes the fresh greens of a new season and the warming light that heralds the return of life.

This is a book that doesn't just tell you how to paint, but has a story to relate as well.
