Nearly all the greatest modern painters have favoured oils for their rich hues and expressive texture, but you dont have to be Van Gogh or Monet to make oils work for you. This step-by-step, gorgeously illustrated entry into the popular Painting Class series introduces all the materials, techniques, and styles needed to become comfortable with this versatile medium. Find out about the properties and ingredients of oil paint and how to mix your own and work with solvents and dryers. When and how to use brushes and spatulas to shape the paint; how to create realistic flesh-tones; and how to model oils without blending brushstrokes. Youll also learn the characteristics of warm, cool and neutral colours and how to approach figure drawing, still-lifes and landscapes.
