Oil Painting Secrets From a Master
Prominent Artist/Teacher David A. Leffel Shares His Secrets For Making Professional-Quality Paintings
by Linda Cateura

While not as profound as Richard Schmid’s Alla Prima, there is a good deal of useful advice in this book. Whether it is an example of how he painted at the time it was written, or due to the editing of the author, it seems to me that this is a description of the method he uses when he paints. Richard Schmid’s book is more useful as the advice is not particular to one style, method or type of subject matter.
