Book Nook!

"I purchased this wonderful book 25 years ago and still use it! I have found this to be one of the most useful books in my collection."   Sharon Teal Coray

Like some of the most popular art instruction books ever written, this 25th anniversary edition of a W-G classic is based on student notes culled over the years from actual workshop sessions. For more than two years, Linda Cateura pursued master teacher David A. Leffel, notebook in hand, as he critiqued the work of students. Her succinct notes capture his insights, philosophy, and painting tips and tricks. Leffel's classic, painterly, old master style, much in the manner of Chardin or Rembrandt, affords ample illustration of the ideas expressed--through his many paintings, details, demonstrations, and diagrams. No matter what the level of skill--beginner, intermediate, advanced or professional--there is something here to apply, ideas that will enable artists to rethink their approach to painting, tips that save time and effort, and clear solutions to persistent painting problems.
