4.0 out of 5 stars Harold Speed- An Excellent Teacher for the Serious Student, 29 Dec. 2004
This review is from: Oil Painting Techniques and Materials (Dover Art Instruction) (Paperback)
This book is very useful if you are interested in an academic/classical style of painting and take the precedent set by 17th century masters as your starting point. It is written by a painter,draughtsman and teacher of immense ability who made a living as an artist 100 years ago- The illustrations whilst not vibrant in print quality are very informative. A note of caution, It is not a book for amateurs who are not willing to wrestle with the serious issues of painting and the language he uses at times is outdated and therefore hard going. I also highly reccomend his companion book on drawing.
