Oil Painting for the Absolute Beginner

The subtitle of this book says it all: A Clear and Easy Guide to Successful Oil Painting. Focusing on the first-time oil painter, this guide covers everything from selecting brushes and setting up your palette to key principles of color and composition.

After an introduction to the fundamentals, follow along with the 12 step-by-step projects and progress from simple landscapes, still lifes, and flower paintings to more challenging subjects, such as animals, seascapes, and portraits. Mini demonstrations break down fundamental painting techniques in a clear, commonsense way.

The information presented in Oil Painting for the Absolute Beginner moves you confidently from first strokes to finished oil paintings. The author shares with aspiring oil painters how to keep the greens in your landscapes looking fresh, advantages to working with watersoluble oil paints, simple tips for dynamic compositions, and other expert advice.

A 90-minute bonus DVD workshop demonstrates the creation of two paintings from start to finish.
