Additional Information

Richard Schmid was adored by other artists certainly because his work was marvelous, but also because he was so open and willing to share his own secrets about painting. Many of them were disclosed in his books, including in two separate volumes of Alla Prima. In Alla Prima II, he extols the joys of painting static objects: “A still life never has to take a break, or get home to a husband and kids to make supper. Occasionally flowers will wilt, but there are ways around that. Still life allows you to take your time and do things right. You are always in charge. You get to decide what to paint, and how you wish to arrange and light it. It is always there for you. Bon appetite!”
