I recently discovered Charles Sovek and am on the verge of buying his book. Has anyone had a chance to read it? From what I've seen of his work I am thinking this book is well worth it as is my John Carlson one. So here I have tried to glean some knowledge, not nearly as colorful as Sovek, but a focus on shape, color, edges and associating values. I'm pretty satisfied with the light guiding your eye. Please let me know what you think. 16 x 12 oil on canvas.
