The most exciting book I have read about painting,
This review is from: Classical Painting Atelier: A Contemporary Guide to Traditional Studio Practice (Hardcover)
If you have been searching for a solid course of study that will help you improve and grow as an artist you should look no further than this practical and insightful guide. Too often books on painting are simple and shallow how-to guides that never hint at how the old masters developed the skills that allowed them to achieve mastery. This book gives you practical advice and a clear set of principles that you can use to focus your efforts. The chapters on colour and composition alone are more than worth the price of the book.
