Format: Hardcover
Although this book is often hard to find, the wait is worth more than this space allows. This is the definitive book on composition by one of the world's foremost California Impressionists. All the elements of composition are here, and very well defined. Payne also throws in a lot of worthwhile positive motivation, and a few humorous anecdotes. This book will assist all plein air artists in ALL media to see what to look for both outdoors, and in the studio. For artists, this book is 5 star!!

Format: Hardcover
Written in 1941 by one of the great California impressionists, this
text covers the principles guiding good composition, and composition
forms. Also covers other landscape painting topics, such as color,
repetition, rhythm, value, and a conclusion that reads more like a
philosophical treatise on painting. Fantastic!
