How do I complete my first oil painting step by step? This book outlines 20 oil painting demonstrations featuring landscape art from the simple to the challenging (taken from my hardback Oil Paintings from the Landscape published by GMC Publications 2003). Subject matter include a stone circle, a church, a cornfield, a lake, a castle, a coast, plus more exotic subject matter as a desert, Toronto, lightning and more. Techniques such as wet-into-wet, impasto and glazing are explored. All demonstrations have been completed with a mere 10 oil colours, 6 brush types, artboards and a few household materials. Guidance on what to buy and how to prepare can be found in the first section of this book. Projects may be tackled in any order but for guidance, are divided into four levels, beginning with level 1 progressing to level 4. Each project within the demonstration section of this book is clearly set out. You will find: An image of the finished painting presenting a challenge. Between 6 and 10 step by step images of how the painting was completed. A list of the oil painting materials used for the project. Corresponding instructions to each image-in-progress on how the painting was done. Tips along the way. The preliminary section covers the art materials required for the projects within, as well as guidance on preparing the art materials for the demonstrations. Troubleshooting advice is given at the end of this book if a painting does not work out as planned. Dimensions of large edition: 10x8in and 84 pages. 'The Artist's Garden in Oil: 18 Step by Step Guides' similarly outlines art demonstrations sourced from inspiration from the garden. Also available in hard copy in pocket sized and large edition.
