Finally, a book to help you solve all your painting problems. Is there a good abstract idea underlying the picture? What details could be eliminated to strengthen the composition? Does the painting have a focus? Are the unessential parts subordinated? Does the painting "Read"? Could you finish any part of the painting?
Are the dominant shapes as strong and simple as possible?
Are the shapes too similar?
Could the value range be increased?
Could the number of values be reduced?
Is the subject effectively lit?
Is the light area big enough?
Would the light look stronger with a suggestion of burnout?
Do the lights have a continuous flow?
Is the light gradated?
Do the shadow shapes describe the form?
Are the shadows warm enough?
In addition, chapters cover the issues of "Depth," "Solidity," "Color," and "Paint."
