New Book on Impressionist Painting by Lois Griffel
If you are looking for a great gift for the artist in your life, here it is - a wonderful second book about painting by the former director of The Cape Cod School of Art. This book follows the very successful Painting The Impressionist Landscape, which introduced us to the colorist method taught by artists, like Charles Hawthorne and Henry Hensche, who followed in the pioneering footsteps of Monet.
Lois Griffel is a fantastic artist and teacher who generously shares everything she knows in this comprehensive second volume. It is a must have for those who have already enjoyed her first book, but also stands alone as a great resource for any artist. The book encompasses different mediums, as well as methods, with demos in oil, acrylic, pastel and watercolor.
The book includes a comparison of tonalism and impressionism, brushwork vs palette knife, detailed observation vs spontaneity, holding masses, values, light as the subject, learning to see, using digital photography as a tool and plein air vs alla prima, to mention just a few of many valuable, insightful chapters found within the pages of Painting Impressionist Color: Any Style, Any Medium.
