New Books!

A few books arrived today, two inspired by the cloth in my Melendez copy practice, the last by my growing interest in Renaissance artists and materials. A couple of these books have portions online with Google, links provided in case you'd like to take a peek:

The drapery books are interesting and inspiring, and I'm already paying more attention to pulls and folds.

And then there is this sweet book I just ran across, most of it online here: The Artistic Anatomy of Trees and for offline use a PDF download.

A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint. What I began by reading, I must finish by acting. 
~ Henry David Thoreau
