3 Reviews
For 31 years, Charles Hawthorne spoke in this manner to students of his famous Cape Cod School of Art. The essence of that instruction has been collected from students' notes and captured in this book, retaining the personal feeling and the sense of on-the-spot inspiration of the original classroom. Though Hawthorne is addressing himself to specific problems in specific paintings, his comments are so revealing that they will be found applicable a hundred times to your own work.

Is the alphabet dated? Everything Hawthorne says is the difference between coloring and painting. This is only dated if painting is dated.
