From the Publisher

The Walter Foster Story

For 80 years, Walter Foster Publishing has been providing how-to books and kits to millions of enthusiastic artists who enjoy the rewards of learning to draw and paint. People who have never before picked up a paintbrush or drawing pencil have discovered their artistic talents through our easy-to-follow instruction books.

A Little Bit of History

Walter Foster Publishing began as a one-man business in the 1920s, when Walter T. Foster, well known as an accomplished artist, caricaturist, art instructor, and art collector, began producing self-help art instruction books from his home in Laguna Beach, California. He originally wrote, illustrated, printed, bound, packaged, shipped, and distributed them himself. In the 1960s, as his product line grew, he moved the operation to a commercial facility, which allowed him to expand the company and achieve worldwide distribution. Although Walter passed away in 1981 at the age of 90, he is fondly remembered for his warmth, dedication, and his unique instruction books.

About the Author

Jerry Yarnell was born and raised in Oklahoma, and early on he exhibited a talent for painting. According to his family, Jerry was "always painting, even before kindergarten." His art has touched the lives of thousands, especially through his acclaimed television painting series. Yarnell paintings and limited edition prints are in corporate and private collections throughout the world, and his works have won scores of awards.

In his television and classroom teaching sessions, Jerry creates a complete painting from beginning to end, often donating the painting to the program's sponsor to be auctioned for charitable fundraising. Jerry also holds numerous benefit art shows for churches, hospitals, and civic and environmental groups, and he keeps busy holding workshops and private lesson in his home studio.

Jerry lives in Oklahoma with his wife, Joan, and his son Joshua. Jerry's older son, Justin, lives nearby in Tulsa. Jerry is quick to say that his family is his number one priority, and his love of teaching is a close second. "Just being with people and showing them how to paint is a real treat," Jerry says,, "and I enjoy donating paintings. It's a way of repaying some of the wonderful favors God and life have bestowed upon me."

I did not find a lot of useful information in this book. I own all of the rest of Jerry Yarnell's books so perhaps I am spoiled!

Not as good as the regular books written by Jerry Yarnell. Not as detailed.
Don't like the publisher.

I now have all of Jerry Yarnell's books. I love his style and attention to detail. These books will get you on the right path to landscape painting and lead you right up to the end of painting the beautiful scenes. I highly recommend all of his books. I am very proud to have the set in my library.

Really learned a lot about basic techniques for painting landscapes with acrylics. I would recommend to anyone wanting to truly capture the breath and variety in their landscapes.
