Beautiful still lifes by Tad Spurgeon

If old world art-making hipness is your thing, you’ll dig Tad Spurgeon. His website is a painting geek’s dream. Spurgeon is a wizard of painting materials and has loads of information on how to make oil paint glow like the Masters (Hint: it’s in the oil!) He’s dedicated a good 30 years of his life to figuring it all out and even has a book filled with his painting secrets. It’s a painter’s bible.
