Thoughtful Nov 4, 2003
Very Good! Not about technique, there are too many books about that. This is about thinking!
Dissapointed Jul 28, 2003
I am not very satisfied with this book. I ordered based on the comments and the 5 stars given to this book. I did notice it was only based on 2 reviews. I would be more careful next time.
The photos of the artists painting are mostly too small to see the details. Some beautiful painting photos printed in large were blur. At least I could learn the process and thinking of those wonderful artists from this book.
Very nice little book Mar 25, 2003
This book visits many different approaches to still-life painting with color photos everywhere. As an artist the pictures are what I study. In this book it is very interesting to read about each artists thought processes. It is not all technique orietnted it goes deeper. A great value.
A helpful, well laid out book Mar 15, 2003
Theodora Philcox has created a very helpful book on the still life. There is a wide range of styles and several very fine artists. Philcox takes the artists' own explanations of their techniques and adds some of her own helpful comments and observations. Styles of art are juxtaposed giving the reader a good view of different approaches to their art. Of special interest is the work of artist Timothy C. Tyler whose realistic and brushy artwork steals the show.
