While all of the information in the original edition has been retained, Richard Schmid revised it for greater clarity, adding abundantly to the text in response to the thousands of artists who contacted him over the years with questions and suggestions. The chapter on color, for example, which was 48 pages is now 75 pages long.
Alla Prima II is over a third larger overall, with over 328 pages, and 262 images of paintings, photos, step-by-step sequences, diagrams and bibliography. Plus, Alla Prima II includes a comprehensive index for convenience.
Each issue includes drawing inspiration and an artist interview, plus a sneak peek at new titles that will help you learn to draw and paint!
