Want to be a better artist/painter? Then study the art of others and experiment painting in their styles and colors even down to producing your own copy of their work. All great artists have learned from other artists in this way. In doing so you will be able to find your own path. The book pictured has only eighty pages but it gives you the life of VanGogh from his birth to his death and many of his paintings and drawings are shown. Visit your local library to find books on artists and their works.
