Wow, that sounds like a large collection. By the way I'm a book hunter and collector, too. Yes I know, most artists prefer the latest colorful art instructional books. But I also like those old books from the 60s 70s and 80s, that smell of old paper, dust, sometimes of muff. It adds something special to my collectors heart.

Can you recommend some other titles from this area? (I already have all E. John Robinsons from the 70s and 80s).

Andrew Loomis. He wrote six books and died in 1959 so all his works are public domain. His writings are full of humour, too.

Here's his first book "Fun With A Pencil [1939];

Re: Seascape Tutorials & Books

Thanks for your recommendations but I already have these fantastic ebooks by Andrew Loomis.

Prices for the original Loomis titles (for instance "Creative Illustrations") skyrocket up to 300 $ and more

But here are the good news: 'Creative illustrations' will be back in print soon
As well as all other Loomis titles, consecutively.

"Painting the Breaking Wave"
Page 1 of 5
Author: Byron_Pickering, Contributing Editor
While the images in this article are part of a completed painting, this demonstration will center on the structure and contours of the basic breaking wave. The completed wave - including the breakover, transparencies, foam patterns and foamburst - is shown below as a guide to the finished composition.

Re: Seascape Tutorials & Books

Hello,
I'm a new here. Try to google E. John Robinson , I think it is best as far as I know.
It doesn't allow me to post a link first time
Regards.

Re: Seascape Tutorials & Books

Robinson's book is great as other people mentioned. Also:

Marine Painting by Rayfield
Painting Ships, shores, and the Sea by Wolf
The Pleasures of outdoor Painting by Stobbart
How to Paint Water by Seligman
I also like all the books by Gruppe. They are out of print, but can be purchased on e-bay.

I also reference alot of books and catalogs from boat designers to get details of a particular type of boat correct.

Re: Seascape Tutorials & Books

I have Roy Lang's book here. You also get a DVD with the book. The book is from Search Press. www.searchpress.com. sorry if that is advertising but I believe this is the only way you can get this book. He lives in the South West of England.

There is also a book by E. John Robinson- Painting the Sea in Oils Using Special Effects.

The E. John Robinson is an excellent book. The Anatomy of Waves was a tremendous help for me and also foam & Spray. Not to mention color, composition, atmosphere.

Also, Carl G. Evers is an awesome realistic painter.
Rick Scott if you like a sort of surreal look for seascapes. Its a Jim Warren sort of look. Here is Warrens website:

Hope this helps

Re: Seascape Tutorials & Books

I have to agree with the loomis comment from Stoney, Loomis' books are excellent learning tools, even his books on figure can be applied to anything. The e john books or dvds are excellent, and if you want something similar but with a bit more drama, Byron's book and videos are very good.

Re: Seascape Tutorials & Books

This looks like an old thread, but if you're still interested in seascape tutorials, my favorites are video tutorials on youtube by award-winning artist Alan Kingwell. His seascapes are unbelievably realistic and his videos show his painting process step-by-step, which I love. I'm currently in the process of painting his 3-part video tutorial called "Atlantic Waves." I can't post links yet because I'm new, so just go to youtube and search for "Alan Kingwell Atlantic Waves," and then you can go to his channel to see the rest of his 60+ videos. Many of them are seascapes and others are landscapes in the snow, etc. I hope you like them as much as I do. His work is amazing!
