Love Richard Schmid and wasn't aware of this book! Thanks for posting about it - it will go on my birthday list ;-)
Brent...thanks for the info on the book. Just ordered. I have been following your blog. Good work and getting better each year. Are you going to include New Harmony in your painting trips this year?
your paintings have inspired me .your work is marvellous.as an amateur painter i cant wait to start a painting myself .thank you for sharing.
Brent, what did you think of Richard Schmid's new book The Landscape. Is it instructional or just a collection of his landscape paintings? Thinking about buying it but have not come across any critiques.
The book is a collection of paintings with a little history. It is definetely not an instructional book. Many of the paintings are repeats from previous books he has published so some people may be dissapointed. It continues to inspire me as the reproduction quality is excellent. I'm glad I added this book to my collection. Brent
I too have the book - the images are instruction enough - I particularly like the way he renders tree branches and merges the groundscape with the walls of buildings.
is there any commentary in the book or is it basically that minor portion of history. I just read alla prima (and then re-read it about a million times) and cannot even even state how impressed by Schmid's artwork and the overall content of the book.
