Classic Aesthetic Principles & Techniques

Excellent tutor explaining techniques in accessible language and compositional principles with Browning's own illuminating developmental examples and paintings.

A thorough and meaningful painting reference - without being overly technical or intellectual - the author focuses on explaining guiding principles for aesthetic and technical development using illustrations with pro and con versions for comparison. Then he gives a sequential method for planning and execution of techniques with staged examples and final solutions as well helpful chapter summaries for reinforcement. A series of finished paintings captioned throughout the book reinforce key points in the text in combination with the illustrative examples.
A great reference plus a good adjunct to appreciating his stunning treatment of western subjects that are usually backlit for which he has achieved acclaim in recent years through major art shows and galleries.

An incomparable out-of-print figurative art painting reference. Highly-collectable for those that appreciate painterly technique based on expressive brushwork and key emotions.
