Oil painting doesn't have to be rocket science, although some books on the subject make it seem that way. Filled with encouraging, easy-to-follow instruction, Oil Painting for the Absolute Beginner is a no-fear, no-experience-required guide to enjoyable painting and happy results. Focusing on the needs of the first-time painter, this book covers everything from selecting brushes and setting up your palette to key principles of color and composition, presented in a way that moves you confidently from first strokes to finished paintings.

Mini demonstrations break down fundamental painting techniques in a clear, common sense way

12 step-by-step painting projects progress from simple landscapes, still life and flower paintings to more challenging subjects, such as animals, seascapes and portraits

The bonus DVD-workshop features the author creating two paintings from start to finish

You'll learn tricks for keeping the greens in your landscapes looking fresh, advantages to working with water-soluble oil paints, simple tips for dynamic compositions and other expert advice to make your introduction to oil painting the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Review by Feefo
A good guide for someone starting out for the first time in oil painting. However, the companion DVD was very elementary indeed, and very slow, literally like watching paint dry. Nevertheless, I picked up some good points from it. (Posted on 16/03/2017)
