From the introduction:
“Today we have an abundance of packaged perfection in the highly developed color palettes produced and sold…. Today’s painters may gain from the ease of obtaining such excellent materials, but they sometimes lose by failing to experiment-—trying different glazes and grounds, or cooking up an odd combination which they’ve never heard of before.”
This is why this book is so great. In an age where nearly everything can be obtained so easily, something important to an artist can be lost: the intimacy and great knowledge of their required materials. Call me a hopeless romantic but there’s something wonderful about having these formulas possibly used by the Old Masters.
After searching the internet high and low for painting medium recipes, I am now extremely pleased to have access to 27 medium formulas plus 150+ others for glazes, varnishes, fixatives, sizes, and so much more. Fantastic!
Dr. Massey was my Professor in Painting at the University of Texas at El Paso.
Hope he is still painting.
