Getting my most coveted book EVER today in the mail, after having ordered it (thanks, Dartman!!) before Christmas. Hardbound copy, hot off the press:
"ALLA PRIMA: Everything I Know About Painting" by one of my very favorite artists, Richard Schmid. 204 pages with 118 full color reproductions. I think I just fainted.
You have no idea how much this book means to me. I already know from browsing through it tonight that I'm going to learn some valuable things as an artist from the pages of this book. Just looking at the paintings helps and inspires me, but he also writes about his process and techniques and thoughts...and I can't wait to actually read it from cover to cover. If I weren't so tired I'd begin right now.
Something about me I just discovered today ~ the way to my heart is through an art book like this one.
