Advice on Painting from John Singer Sargent...



Well folks, it's finally ready to share with you all – a labor of love. Enjoy!... TJK


Advice on Painting from John Singer Sargent



(This link will take you to a 4.9 M pdf file stored on GoogleDrive. You can download the book to your computer or tablet from there...)

Free 46 page digital PDF file, suitable for viewing on tablet and computers, illustrated with full color paintings and close up details | This booklet contains two second-hand accounts of Sargent's teaching and painting methods, as recounted by the Honorable Evan Charteris, K.C. in his 1927 biographical book, "Sargent" (now out of print). Sourced and annotated by me, with a brief essay on Sargent, plus selected paintings by Sargent used to illustrate the text. 

If you are a painter I hope you find this useful...
