"When I first opened the book Painting Landscapes in Oils by Robert Brindley, I thumbed through it and looked at all the paintings. I was bewildered. In one painting, a few strokes denoting clouds, a few brown strokes that seem to represent the ground, then in another painting clear and shimmering details.
As a whole though, I'm thrilled with the teaching presented through all 157 pages."
