A Word From the Author:

"I love painting! It’s such a direct way to enjoy the experience of life, color and nature. I always tell my students that painting is so much easier than photography. And it’s really true! In photography it’s frequently necessary to buy another piece of equipment—a new lens, camera body, filters, lights…ad naueam—to obtain the desired results. Not so with painting. Once you’ve invested in a basic set of quality materials, there is no need to make additional purchases to improve the quality of your work. All you really need is to spend time at your easel." — Sharon Hinckley
