Artists have been imagining otherworldly landscapes for hundreds of years - but only in the past few decades have we an idea of what other planets and moons really look like. "Space Art" shows artists how to capture and create these vistas by combining the latest facts with traditional landscape drawing. Author Michael Carroll, one of the country's most distinguished astronomical artists, explains how to use washes and texturing, how to paint water and ice, rocks and geological formations, craters and alien skies. Fourteen paintings, building in complexity, are presented step-by-step, accompanied by NASA photos and the author's own photographs of mysterious landscapes much closer to home...Michael Carroll, a renowned astronomical and paleo artist for more than twenty years, has done work for NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. His art has appeared in many magazines, including "Time", "National Geographic", "Sky & Telescope", and "Asimov's Science Fiction". One of his paintings flew aboard MIR; another is resting at the bottom of the Atlantic, aboard Russia's ill-fated Mars 96 spacecraft.
