Alla Prima II Everything I Know About Painting - and more by Richard SchmidIts a wonderful book, of course, but frustrating to read because of the larger, wider format than the previous edition. More pictures, more text, but as is the case with so many self-published books, would have been better and more powerful if there was a more vigorous editing process to cut some of the extra verbiage that in my opinion makes it harder to separate the fluff from the important stuff. It seems like he literally included everything he knows, and that doesnt make for as useful a book as I would have preferred since some of it is just random story-telling.
That said, its still one of the best books on alla prima oil painting, just a bit of a bear to hold and read.
