The Simple Secret to Better Painting

Click to shop at Amazon

The subtitle for the book is “How to immediately improve your art with this one rule of composition. What is the secret? What is that one rule? Albert gets right to the point and thankfully reveals the secret in the introduction. Never make any two intervals the same. This is an excellent North Light Book. It builds the case for the one rule and explains its application quite well.

Since Albert is the Editorial Director of North Light Art Instruction books, he uses painting examples from his stable of artist/authors. This is clever cross marketing, but can be forgiven because the examples paintings are good looking and demonstrate the ideas quite well. The discussion of applying this “one rule” is thoroughly illustrated including some corollary guidelines thrown in like using mostly, some and a bit for color and value.
