My usage of this book was to create the painting “Head of a Girl with Pearl Earring” by Jan Vermeer for a college painting class. The book is clear and concise in its step-by-step method, from the beginning where it discusses materials and creating a scale drawing (of the image one wishes to paint) to the actual lesson where it talks about the “way” colors are applied, not just the colors “to” apply. For this of course is the true representation of the original artists’ styles. I’m sure one has looked at a work of art and asked what color is that. How did he get that shade? In Vermeer’s work, this was a problem for me with the background. The book demystifies that nicely.
