Oil Painting Secrets From a Master : 25Th Anniversary Edition, Paperback / softback Book

Oil Painting Secrets From a Master : 25Th Anniversary Edition Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


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, on-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. Leffel's classic, painterly, twentieth-century old master style, much in the manner of Rembrandt or Chardin, affords ample illustration of the ideas expressed - through his many paintings, details, demonstrations, and diagrams, almost all in color. No matter what your level of ability, there is something here to apply to your own work, ideas that will cause you to rething your own ways of painting, hints to save you effort, or solutions to persistent painting problems.
