"Few things excite artists more than the sensory experience of art—the smell of an old studio, the buttery feel of oils under a palette knife, the velvety strokes of a charcoal stick, or the juicy splatters of fresh watercolor paint. The materials alone hold a special place in the hearts of artists, representing possibility, adventure, and a chance to live fully in the moment." ~Elizabeth T. Gilbert
This vintage Walter T. Foster title shows just how timeless this feeling of excitement that fresh (and used!) art tools and materials can evoke. We love the whimsical illustration of the cover art.
