Art Book Recommendation: Brushwork Essentials

This is a great book by an amazing artist whose work I really admire, Brushwork Essentials by Mark Christopher Weber. Not only is this book full of beautiful images of his work, it also offers sound instruction on brushwork techniques. He covers a lot of stuff, from brush anatomy to painting light and shadow. He focuses on oil paints but his instructions should apply equally well to acrylics. This is a must-have for beginners but more advanced painters could still learn a few things. And even if you learned nothing new from it I'd recommend it just to have so many nice samples of his artwork to study and admire.

If you haven't already done so please visit his website to view samples of his extraordinary work.
