IN THE PAST YEAR digital publishing has evolved considerably. A digital book about thick paint could be extremely interesting. Imagine these blog entries placed in logical order, with new chapters and videos bridging the gaps, and published as a digital book. A book made with iBook Author would have text, video, and high resolution images that could be enlarged to see extreme close-ups of the textures of each painting. It is an ideal format for painting instruction and I am very enthused to complete such a project.
