Author Linda Cateura presents classic oil painting tips for intermediate painters, based on the teachings of one of the great names in contemporary American art, David A. Leffel.
Leffel paints in the classic tradition of early Dutch and Flemish artists such as Rembrandt and Chardin. His compositions are known for their visual clarity and are inspired by the human form and still life. The quality of light and its relationship to the objects under observation are the most important elements in his works.
Cateura demonstrates Leffel's painting process and offers general observations and basic advice. Among the topics she covers are massing values, chiaroscuro, color and value, handling edges, and much more.
