New Richard Schmid landscape book

Pin It

I'm trilled to read that a new book is coming from one of my favorite painters of all times, Richard Schmid. It is available for pre-order through his website.

This 11" x 14" book features over 300 images and it is the largest collection of Schmid’s landscapes ever compiled in one book. It is quite expensive ($75 for the softcover and $135 for the hardcover) but I've never regretted buying the also expensive Alla prima - All I know about painting which contains a wealth of information.

Flower imitation oil quickstudy - Flamingo oil painting

Pin It
Lately I've been reading a book by Craig Nelson, 60 minutes to better painting. It's about making lots and lots of quick-studies in oil or acrylic to improve your technique, the idea being that the hardest part of a painting is the start.

When I returned from cleaning my brushes my first impression of the painting was that the 2 flamingos resembled a pair of flowers, hence the title.

Sorry for the lack of updates but the last 3 weeks I've been working on a painting for an upcoming show in October. More about that in a later post.
I realized that I didn't post the finished version of the polar bear acrylic so here it is framed.
