For performers on a budget, the price can’t be beat! This eBook is a freebie so it would have been silly for me to leave it off the Must Read Art Books list. The eBook was published by the well-known art material company Winsor & Newton. While certainly this book is relatively skewed towards the company’s own products, I include the eBook in this list because it is chock full of easy-to-absorb and valuable details for anyone interested in learning about oil paint items and basic painting techniques. There’s even a brief record of oil painting included.
