This review is from: Oil Painting for the Serious Beginner: Basic Lessons in Becoming a Good Painter (Paperback)
"Oil Painting For the Serious Beginner" is not for beginners only, as the title might imply. The text is rich with thoughtful instruction, anectdotal stories and just plain good advice. Whatever painting level you find yourself at, there is enough practical guidance and insightful discussion on the art of making a painting "work" to keep you challenged. Author/painter Steve Allrich is clearly in love with the process of oil painting, and his passion for this subtle art is infectious. Be inspired, be heartened, be provoked. I was, and continue to be!
