Landscape painting for everyone

The titled book, Plein Air Painting for Everyonecould be called Landscape Panting in Your Own Back Yard. The book starts your painting in this familiar area next to your house. Before venturing out to unknown areas, start in a place familiar to you. This book has practical advice on how to set up your easel, paint brushes, paint color choices, canvases, and carrying cases so you are ready to paint.

tips and tricks for the contemporary oil painter

Tips for the Contemporary Painter could have better been called The Artist Code since it debunks many miss teachings that can hinder the artist/painters’ personal growth. This is a talk between you and me. It is personal talk that gives you a lifetime of information on how an artist may view things. With any information given, if it works keep it, if not discard it. The broad topics discussed should answer most of your many questions and open you up to ideas you may have not even considered. It is the basic book all artist must read.
