Oil Painting Secrets from a Master, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Some of the most popular art instruction books ever written have been based on student notes culled over the years from actual workshop sessions, with all their power and immediacy - and with practical, one-to-one contact between student and teacher.

This is such a book. For more than two years, Linda Cateura has pursued teacher/artist David A.

Leffel, notebook in hand, as he critiqued the work of students.

Linda Cateura's succinct notes capture his insights, philosophy, painting hints, and general comments.

Review by

Excellent book packed with solid advice on the art of painting from artist and teacher, David A. Leffel. Perfect for dipping into from time to time to remind one of how a painter should think and see. This is not the usual how to paint book.
