An Artist Teaches Deluxe Retina Ready eBook Edition



An Artist Teaches is the defining instructional masterpiece written by David A Leffel, the legendary teacher from the Art Students League in New York. This book is the culmination of years of dedication to the art of oil painting and has become a “painting bible” to many art students. We are excited to offer this classic oil painting art book in four new eBook formats.

With nearly 50 years of teaching experience, Leffel’s logical approach to painting is magnified in these ten concise films. Offering personal explanations of his ideas, Leffel shows the important principles of painting by using examples of his own work. You will see the real application of edges, paint quality, color, value and composition as they manifest in a painting. These films are strategically placed to illuminate his writing and make his teaching philosophy come alive to the reader.
