eBook: 10 Basic Steps to Starting ANY Painting. Ed 2

10 Steps to Starting an Alla Prima Painting for Beginners by Kevin McSherry Lo
Edition 2 with hotlinks to videos!

This eBook will help you understand the basics of the alla prima painting process.

I hope that this eBook helps you in your efforts to become a better painter. This book outlines the basic alla prima (wet-into-wet) process to achieving great paintings. It’s written simply and is illustrated with photographs of my own work. This is the process I teach to beginner painters in my art classes and it’s the  best method to learn before branching out to other approaches. I’ve tried to avoid painters’ jargon in favour of clarity. There are links to videos on my web site, so you can see the process at work.

It takes time and effort to produce these eBooks, so if it does, please help me continue to provide you with valuable material by buying me a coffee by  PayPal.  Any amount, however small is much appreciated and will boost my caffeine level. What’s a coffee cost? €3.50?
