Painting with Oils
This practical book puts the joy of painting with oils within reach of all who want to develop their skills
Oils give a rich, majestic quality to a painting, but may often be deemed too tricky or ambitious to try. Examples of landscape, marine, nude, and equestrian paintings will inspire and show the rich diversity, texture, and depth that oil painting can achieve. Written by a professional painter, this volume encourages artists of all levels to experiment with the medium and to develop their art. Included is information on the importance of drawings, and a guide to oil paints, suggesting a key range of colors. Step-by-step examples throughout offer practical tips and advice on composition, color and light, and framing.
