This practical and inspirational guide, in a handy sketchbook format, is aimed at the practised beginner and shows how to achieve successful oil paintings in just 30 minutes – ideal for the busy amateur artist who doesn't have much time to paint.

Everyone thinks you need to set aside a long time to do an oil painting, but in this attractive guide Melanie Cambridge encourages quick and simple painting. By working with just a few materials and focusing on the key techniques it is possible to achieve successful paintings in no more than half an hour. You then just need to leave the paintings to dry, or use a hairdryer to speed up the process. For those artists who already have a little painting experience, learning to work more quickly enables them to free up their style and paint more spontaneously.

With clear, easy-to-follow advice and ideas, this guide proves that it is possible to paint quickly and successfully with oils in no more than half an hour. This book is filled with practical projects and step-by-step demonstrations as well as helpful tips and checklists to guide you through each stage of your painting.
