Title: Composition of Outdoor Painting - Edgar Payne

Author(s): Edgar Payne

"The principles [Edgar Payne] developed...were to be captured in his book, 'Composition of Outdoor Painting,' that provides instruction on both the techniques of landscape art and what he considered equally important, its proper motivation." "...The text that follows is a skillful balance of rules of harmonious composition with a sensitive respect for individual creativity and aesthetic judgment..." Rena Coen, from The Paynes, Edgar and Elsie: American Artists
