Again after buying tens of mostly useless books on tonality and a waste of precious funds I find one that gives me what I was looking for. That being practical exercises on the practice of tone and value to create the type of pictures that are in my mind. One of my favorite exercises of which there are many is the tonal collage. What an eye opener. But through luck I find it on sale but now others will unfortunately be taken advantage of by these 'book sellers' who buy your books for pennies and then sell them at outrageous prices...because they can. I certainly hope they will at least re-print it enough to put it in libraries.

Considering how important tonal values are to the success of any painting, I was more than a little shocked to find no works devoted entirely to its coverage. This book is loaded with information and stays on topic (this seems to be a challenge for all painting reference books). This book is definitely in my "Top 10 Have to Have to Paint Well" books list. Highly recommended. I agree, too bad it's out of print.

This subject, to be fair, is not an easy one to convey. I had hoped for a "break-through" moment, when I would understand tonal
values, but as yet, it has not happened.

Tonal value has been a challenging concept for me. Especially in Portrait painting. The exercises in this book are a way to "get it" for me. It goes beyond words and teaches by experiencing through the process. I recommend it for those who learn by "Doing".
