KIRKUS REVIEW

The eye with which a painter looks on life must be more keen, more directed, more disciplined than the eye of the general observer. In this text by the author of Fun With a Pencil, the author analyzes the painter's vision from the point of view of line, color, design and style, form and medium. Helpful both to the groping painter and to the uninitiated but interested audience of painting, this text is illustrated in color and black and white illustrations, and is recommended to those who are uninstructed but interested in increasing their sensitivity to graphic expression.
