One of the earlier Rockport "Cape Ann" painters really knew his brush strokes! If you have never seen his work before you should invest in this wonderful example of great artwork! His son Robert and Nephew Charles are following in his footsetps! Enjoy this Good Book!!
A must read for any serious oil painter. It's too bad that all of the example weren't in color. This book is good if you take your time and try to understand why he painted the way he did and what he was thinking. This has really helped me become more expressive in my painting. I hear the "The composition of outdoor painting" by Payne is also a must read for any seriour artist.
