Your response has been gratifying beyond my expectations.
With your many letters and excellent questions, you have expressed to me your appetite for knowledge and learning, not only about painting itself, but also about the deeply beautiful philosophical ideas I believe should underlie all of the arts.
Much of what has been added to this new edition is the direct result of your thoughtful observations and suggestions. Alla Prima was first published in when printing was still a film-to-press process. The book was well received and went into thirteen printings.
Therefore, to continue publication of Alla Prima, I have converted my book into a digital format to meet current industry methods. While this transformation was a sizable effort over several years, it has turned out to be a great opportunity to fine tune and greatly expand what was already a good thing. With the invaluable assistance of Katie Swatland, it was possible to not only make the digital conversion, but to add considerably to the quantity and quality of the pictures and text.
With this new edition, now called Alla Prima II, we were able to restore and enhance all images to a state of being a near perfect match of my paintings. All that is lacking here now is the sweet aroma of my oil paints. Since this book is an updated and greatly extended version of the original Alla Prima, I have retained the look and general format of the earlier printings.
However, I have added abundantly to the text of each original chapter and created new sections within chapters. There's a useful label keyword list on the right That was meant to mean, "on the right in Stape's blog," not somewhere along the right side of my post Dave - thanks for the sample pages link http: He puts my long posts to shame.
For example, pg is two pages of heavy text. Which could have been completely summed up by writing "There are two errors working from life: NOT painting something that IS there, but is essential for credibility or clarity.
Richard Schmid, Alla Prima
These two errors occur with the colors, values, drawing, edges or some combination of the above. Several pages about squinting, could have been summed up in few sentences and three pictures.
AllisonR, The text you deemed too long may not be seen like that in the eyes of others, especially beginners, Richard was trying to say that one should never give up when the painting turns to be unsuccessful but rather try to investigate and find the culprit. He concluded that one has to check colors, values, drawing, edges or a combination of all.
I was delighted to read Richard using the parable of criminal investigation while trying to find the source of the error, because I myself used this kind of analogy last week when talking here on wetcanvas with Sid: I don't own Richard Schmid books I really liked his info on the limited palette.

I don't have his later expanded version, but had the earlier version. It is not about his life - it is about painting. It may be a bit advanced for a beginner, but I would recommend it anyway. Like any book, you may not agree with all the information, techniques or philosophy behind them, but there is a lot more information here than in your typical North Light book.
Since much of it is advanced, it's a book you keep around and learn from as you advance, in my opinion.
It is heavy in text. It is not a book that you learn from by looking at the pictures. Get it I own both editions because I didn't want to miss anything. It's the manual of painting. In my opinion as a general rule, any idea is important.
It doesn't really matter if it's mostly a story about his life or his opinions on painting Creating art is about being creative! Why would you steal from another artist? And then offer continued theft with this post?
Kevin Well said. Schmidt's book is wonderful in many ways.
Hollis Dunlap’s technique
I especially liked his section on different ways to begin a painting. Still, I would start with a something more direct.
My only complaint against the book is that the written material was in most places not divided into columns. It makes the book more physically difficult to read. Stapelton Kearns' blog is more fun for me. I keep digging up nuggets and rereading them. However, it is not organized to get someone off and running.
There are other starter books but I like the limited palette as you can get in for less money. Kearns also indicated that the limited palette was a good way to start. If you stick with painting, you might find several books worth reading along the way to Schmidt's. Regards, Gary. Don Quite agree here, Don. I've learned so much from it and never tire of rereading specific sections that are germane to something I'm working on. It becomes a "lightbulb" moment.

Schmid's book is my "go-to" book for everything to do with painting. Stapleton Kearns is still unaware that red and blue are secondary colors.
This is not the kind of authors I would like to see their blogs. Just to advise all: You may not post a pdf or web pages of copyrighted material here. You may refer to an artist's copyrighted book that is advertised on a web page.
Zippie, The PDF would be a pirated version of the book, and therefore illegal. Obviously a beginner here, as I created this thread, would you mind explaining what you mean? Regards, Gary The key for me will be to get started, and then the struggle will be to get inspired. Once I get going I don't stop.
Alla Prima II Everything I Know About Painting - and more
I did start playing with the oil pastels, so at least I'm in the art room. I know this question wasn't addressed to me, but I'll give it a go. In the past, common theory was that you could mix all the colours of the spectrum from three primary colours, red, yellow and blue. They are called primary because you can't mix those colours from other pigments.
Secondary colours are made by mixing two of them together. However this isn't true, and it is still in many books. First of all, you can't mix all the colours from any three pigments, so a better way to say it is, what 3 pigments allow you to mix the fullest range of colours possible.
Those colours ideally are magenta, yellow and cyan, but magenta and cyan aren't available in pigment form, so the closest are quinacridone magenta PV19 redder than true magenta , and phthalocyanine blue - green shade PB Magenta and yellow will mix a red, but it won't be as chromatic as some others that you can buy, especially cadmium red. Likewise, magenta and cyan will mix blue.He says what good lighting is for painting. Master painters in their 25 year would find even more in it.
