In this book, ARC Living Artist™ Stuart Dunkel shares his insights into the painting process. In his experience as an oil painter he has found that painting has three dimensions: the technical, creative and spiritual.
The first chapter looks at some of the technical aspects to create a painting. The second chapter is daring, the spirituality of painting, breaking down their components and exploring their meanings. The third chapter explores the creative process.
"Creating art can be both fun and daunting. An artist’s quest is to understand the basics and creatively apply the finer points to create a beautiful image. I hope you will find some of your answers here."
