A widely cited resource on painting in the style of the old masters, this classic guide contains a wealth of insights for amateur and professional artists.

Parkhurst's four-part treatment encompasses materials, general principles, technical principles, and practical applications. Topics include canvases, easels, brushes, paints, and other tools; attitude and originality; drawing, perspective, light and shade, composition, and color; and sketching, still life, flowers, portraits, landscapes, and figures. 64 illustrations enhance this informative manual.
