Enhance your purchase
Bestselling artist and writer Hazel Soan has distilled her art teaching into the things that matter most and can be digested in a short period of time. Learning to paint is one of the life-long aspirations of many of us and the techniques of oil painting can be picked up faster than you think. And, mistakes can be corrected much more easily in oils than any other painting medium, making it ideal for beginners.
Hazel's concise book explains everything you need to know about oils in an accessible way. She advises on the materials you need (keeping things to a minimum), mixing colours and teaches the basic brush techniques and how to use a palette knife. The subjects covered range from still life, flowers, animals, landscapes, figures and portraits.
Filled with easy-to-follow exercises and demonstrations, this is a practical and helpful guide to learning to paint in oils very quickly.
