9781906388171: Colour and Light in Oils

Through an array of demonstrations and inspirational images, a respected and successful painter reveals all his secrets for depicting light and mood, and bringing out the rich color of oils. Many artists don’t realize exactly how to use oils to create colorful and expressive paintings. These pages show them the way, with practical advice on materials and equipment, painting techniques, mixing and harmonizing colors, and capturing landscapes, still lifes, flowers, gardens, interiors, and townscapes. Especially invaluable is the intimate glimpse into a professional’s working methods on location: planning his composition, producing preliminary sketches, and following through every stage of development until a beautiful painting is done.

Book Description PAVILION BOOKS, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. Often seen as dark and gloomy, oils can, in fact, be used to create colourful and light paintings that are wonderfully expressive. One significant characteristic of oil paint is its richness and depth of colour, something that is of particular interest to Nicholas Verrall. Immediately striking in all his pictures is the skilful way he handles colour to interpret the special qualities of light and mood found in a certain moment in time. In this book he discusses his working methods and the importance of colour, at the same time placing these issues within the general context of painting in oils, with all that this has to offer. Colour and Light in Oils includes information, demonstrations and many inspirational finished paintings to help painters understand the value of colour in interpreting ideas with feeling and impact. It provides guidance on a wide range of skills, techniques and advice on subject matter and associated topics. Illustrated throughout, the book covers: the medium of oils; understanding oils; materials and equipment; painting techniques; and the studio. Bookseller Inventory # AA89781906388171
