Four decades after its initial debut, renowned artist Foster Caddell's Keys to Successful Landscape Painting is back by popular demand.
Foster Caddell devoted his entire life to his art, beginning with developing a sophisticated drawing technique while in high school. He was employed as a lithographer before serving with the US Army Air Corps in World War II, documenting life in the Pacific Theater with his sketchbook and watercolors. Upon returning to civilian life, Caddell continued working in lithography while engaged with freelance illustrating and portraiture, and he began teaching after being approached by local aspiring artists eager to learn his techniques. From these humble beginnings, Foster Caddell soon became the founder/teacher and CEO of the largest private art school in southern New England, located in Voluntown, Connecticut.
Intended for intermediate to advanced artists, this is not your standard how-to art book. Using his own artwork as a visual aid, Foster gives the reader 50 tips, or "keys," for solving a variety of problems in oil-based landscapes. Foster Caddell packs decades of wisdom into the pages of this must-own guidebook for artists of all skill levels.

Foster Caddell was born August 2, 1921 in Pawtucket, R.I. and passed away June 2, 2013, but his teachings live on in the form of his three books, Keys to Successful Landscape Painting, (1976) Keys to Successful Color (1979, and Keys to Painting Better Portraits (1982). The Landscape book was updated in 1993.

Throughout his career, he was proud to say that he had spent his entire life pursuing his passion for art. In grade school he displayed a talent for drawing and sketching, and began painting in high school. Upon graduation he gained employment at the Providence Lithograph Co. in Rhode Island. Drafted in 1943, he was assigned as an artist in the Army Air Force. When discharged he returned to the Lithograph Company. He left the company in 1951 to become a free-lance illustrator. He then began illustration children's books, textbooks, and doing drawings and paintings for various religious organizations.

Now living in Voluntown, CT with his wife June Kaufmann, he began teaching local aspiring artists in his living room. Before long he was the owner and CEO of the largest privately owned art school in southern New England. In addition, he became a renowned portrait and landscape artist.

June passed away in 1989, and he remarried Gail Marchant in 1993

He continued teaching and painting, both at home and at workshops across the USA, until retiring in 2006, at age 85.
