How I Paint: Secrets of a Sunday Painter


Buechner, Thomas S.

What is the process by which a painting comes into being? What goes on in the artist’s mind? What different techniques are used in creating a still life, landscape, or portrait? In this look at the complex, often mysterious painting process, painter/museum director Thomas S. Buechner combines clear how-to instruction with striking insights to help us look at pictures in a wholly new way.


“He has spent a lifetime studying technique, and has been teaching art since the 1950’s. Buechner is an oil painter.” — reviewed by Bonnie Hamlin.
