His book is all about squinting to see values and edges and making color charts to learn what colors mix what. Also has a chapter on identifying wether the light is cool or warm and make the shadows the opposite. Theres some corny jokes and stuff too. I have just saved you $65. Spend that money on life drawing sessions instead.

the same shit is in loomis' creative illustration book. for free. Its a scam on impressionable young artists.

and impressionable old artists too, considering some of the people I've met who also value the book. How is it a scam if people are learning and taking inspiration from it? I'd say it's a pretty fair deal. You've inspired me to go re-read my copy.

You guys dont find it a little suspect that the first things on his site are all his little books and dvds? Are the basics of painting that are in his book any different from the ones loomis used? I think people buy his book because its the flashiest one out there with nice glossy pics of his super slick paintings. The basics you can teach are the same no matter what, and there are tons of places online for free that you dont need to waste $60. Some people love wasting money though...
Heres a good thread too. Manley explains lots of stuff about color in a nice and concise manner. The color charts exersice from Schmids book is in that thread somewhere too.
