Author : Stanley Maltzman
"""Description:Stanley Maltzman is a naturalist artist whose affection for working outdoors stems partially from his years in Scouting and from living in the Hudson Valley region so rich in art history and scenery. Living in this environment makes it a natural for Maltzman to draw his inspiration from nature, and the drawings in this book attest to his love of this area and his willingness to share his knowledge with all.Maltzman's drawings have been widely exhibited in museums and galleries around the country, including the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the National Academy of Design, the Capricorn Gallery, and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History.His strong belief that good painting evolves from the ability to draw well leads to frequent invitations to lecture and conduct his ""plein air"" seminars and workshops for high school and adult students. Maltzman teaches professionally at the Hudson River Workshops in Greenville, New York. He has been featured in the April 1986 issue of American Artist and is listed in Who's Who in American Art. Maltzman is a member of the Pastel Society of America and the Hudson Valley Art Association."""
