About the Author

Mitchell Albala, whose semi-abstract and atmospheric landscapes have been exhibited nationally, is the author of two books: The Landscape Painter's Workbook: Essential Studies in Shape, Composition, and Color (Rockport Publishers) and Landscape Painting: Essential Concepts and Techniques for Plein Air and Studio Practice (Watson-Guptill), a leading title on the subject since it was published in 2009. In addition to leading plein air workshops in Italy, Albala is also a popular workshop instructor in the Pacific Northwest and has lectured on Impressionism and landscape painting at the Seattle Art Museum. He has written for International Artist and Artists & Illustrators magazines, and his work was profiled in the French Arts magazine Practique des Arts. His popular painting blog holds a top spot on feedspot.com's "Top 80 Websites & Blogs for Painters." His paintings, workshops, and blog can be found on his website mitchalbala.com. He lives in Seattle, Washington.


"It encapsulates everything I want to get across to my students in my workshops...This book explains everything." * Charlie Hunter, painter and host of Reasonably Fine Art Talk *
"This rich and informative new guide is particularly strong on color and composition, offering detailed diagrams and simple strategies for getting the most out of your palette." * Artists & Illustrators Magazine *
"Mitchell's new book is like opening a beautiful travel guide to exotic destinations-there's so much to explore: shapes, composition, color, and more. The Landscape Painter's Workbook will no doubt become my comfortably worn and dog-eared 'road-atlas' by my side as I explore the wondrous world of landscape painting." * Carol Olson, host of The Artful Painter Podcast *
"Helps artists, from beginners to experienced, apply the lessons and build their skills." * Artists Magazine *
"Mitchell writes very well, so well in fact that this new book transcends genre, making it useful to all artists, not just landscape painters. I work in still life, yet am finding these exercises enormously helpful. Bravo!" * Margaret Davidson, author of Contemporary Drawing: Key Concepts and Techniques *
"Has great focus and organization. It discusses topics in depth that are often glossed over, if mentioned at all." * Steve Whitney, painter and instructor *
"Mitchell has a lot of respect for his readers. It's not easy to explain what goes through one's mind when you're painting, but he puts into words some very complex ideas and says them so clearly." * Sue Charles, painter *
"I had thought you covered just about everything in your first book, but The Landscape Painter's Workbook takes it to another level." * Bill Hook, painter *
"Your ability to dissect a painting and clearly describe its important qualities makes the book a valuable asset for any serious student, as well as experienced painters alike." * Bill Vrscak, painter *
