the skies, the fields, the water
on 7 December 2009
I love this book. I'm a frustrated artist - bad painter, bad musician, bad poet. But Hilder's work makes me wonder about what I could do. Just look at the beauty, transparency and fluidity in his skies! I was given the book as a birthday gift in the '80s and lost it, but have recently bought a used copy via Amazon, and it is worth every penny for the pictures alone. I must admit that the instruction contained comes across as a little procedural, even clinical, but can't see how that could be different. The subject is not something that one can easily put across in words, it's a "feel" thing. Just look at the paintings and be inspired. It's like being there.
