Format: Paperback
This is not the first book I have bought by Bernard Dunstan. Some thirty years ago I had others. In effect I became his pupil, a distant one and learned through him many of the better techniques that I have incorporated into my own style of painting.
Looking at this book I see that I can learn more. One illustration; 'Venice, the Arsenale' 81/2" x10''is worth the price of the book alone. Economy of means, drawing and atmosphere together make this an accomplished work. Perhaps I too am getting better, if so I would be very happy to paint such a picture and bring with it a sense of place and the joy of having looked and created. In my way and through his teaching and those like him ; I am part of a great tradition. If you are like me you will want this book.

Bernard Dunstan is still painting at 90 and his work is fresh as ever. Wonderful painter. This books tells in his own words how his painting and life evolved and the pcitures are inspired. The little drawings from his sketch books are gems.
