About this title

Synopsis:

A favored medium of artists down through the centuries, oil painting allows a nearly infinite range of expression for the artist. Here is instruction in all aspects of oil painting, starting with stretching and sizing the canvas, to color mixing, brushwork, use of the palette knife, composing a picture, and taking it to completion. Titles in the new Artist’s Handbook Series are designed for dedicated amateurs but will also by used and valued by professional artists. Each title in the series has a sturdy hardcover binding, allowing it to be taken out to the field as handily as it is used in the studio. The books’ hidden spiral bindings keep pages lying flat, so students can work freely with their art materials without having to fight with their instruction manual. Each title supplements textual instruction with more than 400 color illustrations showing paintings in various stages of completion. There is detailed information on artists’ tools, techniques, mixing colors, creating special effects, and trouble-shooting to correct errors. All Artist’s Handbooks show examples of works by famous artists in the respective media to help students see how each medium has been used by world-renowned masters.
