Readers will learn to identify abstract patterns, the relationships between shapes and how to evoke an emotional response from their paintings in The Painterly Approach. They will discover what the painterly approach is and how to define an object by planes of color and value rather than by line. The focus is placed on the abstract pattern rather than in actual objects, on relationships between shapes rather than on detail and on provoking an emotional response rather than absolute realism. The reader will move beyond the fundaments to more advanced theories of perspective, brushstroking, edges, form and shadows. Finally, a step-by-step approach to painting using two demonstrations, one working alla prima, and the other en plein air show how to apply the painterly approach from start to finish.

Invaluable Guidance

Bob Rohm is very generous here with the knowledge he shares. I don't think he leaves a single thing out. I particularly appreciated the sections on sources of light and the colour of light. It is an area that I have struggled with but with Rohm's book I am gaining a deeper appreciation of the elements involved and the difference that getting the light right makes to the painting. I will be taking this along on my painting trips from now on.
