About the Author

Bob Bates was born in South Gate, California, in 1927. In early childhood, he developed a love for art and a passion for painting--both of which continue today. Bates majored in art and advertising at East Los Angeles College and later attended Los Angeles Trade Tech.

Bates' paintings are displayed in many collections. He conducts art demonstrations and workshops throughout the year, and he frequently gives lectures at colleges on advertising and fine art as a profession. Bates and his wife, Valerie, live in Southern California.

A pretty good book. Bob Bates has a way of capturing a country scene. I love the charm of his paintings and they are fun trying to incorporate the style into my own paintings

This book is fantastic for any new artist, it is easy to use and the instructions are not complicated. In addition the use of color guidance makes it a snap in completing the full painting
