Conversations with painters
Conversations with painters
by Noel Barber
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 2 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this book. As an amateur artist it is so nice to listen in to conversations about art, it is so enlightening and fascinating to hear how artists work and what their aspirations are. Noel Barber seemed to ask just the right questions. Great book that I know will remain on my shelf so that I can dip in to it for years to come.

After seeing Eugene Onegin at the Vue cinema recently for the first time, I wanted to have the music at home, and this CD was just right. It is a lovely album and transported me back into the opera

An enjoyable read, but the heroines seem to fall in love very easily. However the historical side of the story was enlightening

Seen in Perspective: 1895-1945: A Panorama of 50 Years
by Percy V Bradshaw
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars An Interesting book, 16 Mar 2012
This was on ok book, I had already purchased Come Sketching by Percy Bradshaw and loved it. Percy had invited his fellow artist friends to comment on their styles which he wrote about and also included illustrations, this book did not have the same effect on me and I didnt read it with the same enthusiasm and it is now sitting on the shelf. Having said that Percy is a good and very interesting writer.

I know that Eddie Askew is a very special person and his books and prayers are inspirational but I buy them so that I can enjoy his wonderful paintings and drawings. These are very inspirational for me and I love them

Edition: Unknown Binding

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for sketchers, 18 Jan 2012
I am in the process of reading this book and it is wonderful. The contributors share invaluable insights into the pleasure of sketching and although they are all very famous and most have been sketching, drawing and painting all their lives, they happily pass on their experiences. For anyone who is mainly self taught and desparate for help and advice this is the book to read.

For anyone who loves rubic cubes, this is a good way of sharing the enjoyment, I cannot say whether it is durable because it is a Christmas gift.
