Learning to Paint – What do the usual books miss out?

Thanks to all the replies from a previous post about my future e-books and instructions, there were some excellent ideas.

But to make the books even better, I thought we could approach the subject from a different angle – What do the current range of books etc leave out – what’s missing???

I think I have mentioned that I will be starting off with a beginners e-book, that will cover absolutely all the basics in simple terms, from going out and buying your art materials to doing your 1st couple of paintings, but there will also be novice and advanced e-books in the pipeline – these will cover wildlife more specifically.

Any animals you would like to see specifically covered in detail?

    Dear Jason

    My problem is drawing, drawing and more drawing, enlarging and getting the drawing onto a canvas.

    Then I would also like to know: why do you put tape around the edges of your canvas?

    Thanks for your site, I love visiting it once a week and long to paint the way you do. I am constantly in awe of how life-like your paintings turn out. My favourite is the close-up of the Thinker.

    Well, good luck with your new e-books.

      I pu tthe tape around my canvas to give a nice clean edge when it is removed and also it holds the unstretched canvas on my board. Keeping it taught. Drawing is a practice thing but there are some techniques which help you to get measurements pretty accurate if you take your time – details on my ebook etc more demos on my tutorial site – http://www.jasonmorgan.co.uk
