Stefan Baumann

eBook for The Grand View Artist Stefan Baumann completed…

Just uploaded the eBook I finished last week to No, I didn’t write it! Just helped with the final assembly. It was written by artist and host of the PBS series “The Grand View: America’s National Parks through the Eyes of an Artist” Stefan Baumann in the form of 4 years of posts at his blog, Daily Painting. A year of editing of these posts and emails sent to his substantial following by student and volunteer blog editor Kris Baxter resulted in this revised eBook. You’ll be able to download a better copy to print straight from his own website,, soon, but for now, read it (and see some magnificent art) at

We were fortunate to receive a lovely compliment from the local printers Kris took the finished eBook to in Mt. Shasta – they asked if they could use a copy of the cover as an example for other customers to see what they can do! It does look beautiful, and includes many images of Stefan’s fine nature paintings, including plein air landscapes and wildlife, as well as wonderful instruction on oil painting. I highly recommend that anyone interested in art read or download it.


This is a new kind of project for me, and it was really fun to do. If you have a project similar to this in mind, please contact me to discuss how I may be able to help you realize your vision.
