Landscapes in Oils Covering all the working methods needed to produce traditional oils landscapes, this book takes you through colour theory, aerial perspective, planning and composition, and then enables you to become familiar with the techniques via step by step projects. By working through these projects the beginner quickly learns how to compose, plan, and paint a series of oils landscapes to be proud of.
Oil-Painting Tips and Techniques Is a book that covers every technique available to the oil painter, from the 'Old Master' underpainting - overpainting and glazing methods, to the impasto impressionist techniques. Everything is described and illustrated, enabling the reader to choose a range of working methods to suit their intention. Step by step projects show a range of techniques, starting with simple methods and building to more complex ones.
