This new edition of a revered guide to the technical aspects of painting marks the 40th anniversary of its original publication. Fully revised by author Jack Faragasso, the highly sought-after but long-unavailable book features improved imagery, materials, and edits, including a new chapter on working in natural sunlight. The revisions are guided by extensive notes by Faragasso, an expert in the Frank J. Reilly method of understanding how color works in various realistic lighting conditions and how to make paint replicate those visual impressions. 
A former Director of the Reilly School of Art and an instructor at the Art Students League, Faragasso offers a full treatment of the Reilly techniques in clear, coherent terms. His exposition of the principles of painting and color applies to all subject matter — including portraits, figures, and still life — and under any lighting conditions. Anyone wishing to paint effectively in a traditional manner will benefit from this volume, including serious beginners, intermediate to advanced students, and teachers of art and painting.
