A new, up-to-date edition of the popular and comprehensive encyclopedia by professional and award-winning artist, Jeremy Galton.

Ideal for artists of all skill levels, this A-Z reference covers a multitude of topics concerning oil painting. The book is divided into two sections: the first provides step-by-step demonstrations that guide artists through a variety of techniques, from basic colour mixing through to creating special effects such as peinture a l'essence and sgraffito. The second part focuses on themes, illustrating how individual artists tackle a number of common subjects, including landscapes, buildings, portraits, still life, skies and water.

This resource provides a wealth of stimulating ideas to help artists both amateurs and veterans develop their own oil-painting style.
