I would highly recommend for a beginner or anyone interested in understanding how to use oil paints to capture the art infront of you!
Information About The Author:
In my latest book; Oil Painting Essentials, Mastering Portrait, Still Life, Landscape, Figure, and Interior, I try and reduce the complexities of oil painting to core issues that can be found in all genres. My hope is that by encouraging a multi-subject approach, the book will make the rewards of realistic painting accessible to all levels of painters. I was born in Wisconsin, raised in Ohio, graduated from N.Y.U. and have lived in New York for the last forty years. I am a painter, writer, and instructor who teaches painting and drawing at The Art Student's League in New York City and at workshops around the country. My earlier book; Problem Solving for Oil Painters came out in 1985 and has been going strong ever since. I'm also a playwright with three plays published by Samuel French that are performed throughout the country and--occasionally--around the world (thanks New Zealand!). Oil Painting Essentials, my most recent writing endeavor, is the culmination of forty years of probing the issue of what it means to be an oil painter--why it's important, how it can be made more accessible, and what it can teach us about life.
