Praise for the previous edition:

"It's best to look as this as a compendium of single-subject demonstrations, albeit a themed one. Turning the pages more or less at random reveals all sorts of useful information on subjects such as on skies, light, reflections, choosing a subject, underpainting and glazing, as well as a good selection of demonstration paintings on subjects including flowers, landscapes and water.

The individual volumes were definitely something to work through, but I rather favour serendipity here. Just let the book fall open and read from there; it's full of wisdom and good advice." - Henry Malt, artbookreview.net

This is a practical and comprehensive guide for all oil painting enthusiasts, from the beginner to the experienced artist. Drawing on material previously published in the highly successful Leisure Arts series, four bestselling, professional artists provide advice on materials, painting from photographs, colour and composition. They describe basic and more advanced techniques such as wet on wet, wet on dry, scumbling, dry brush, sgraffito, impasto and glazing. For those wanting to avoid the use of additives like turpentine or white spirit, there is a section on water mixable oils. For readers who would like to see quick results, there is a section on instant oil painting, or painting in an intuitive, spontaneous way. Easy to follow step-by-step demonstrations show the reader how to paint landscapes, sea and sky, still life and flowers, and each section is accompanied by a selection of inspirational paintings by the four featured artists, in a rich variety of styles.

* Leisure Painter, March 2020 *

I already paint watercolours, but have been thinking of having a go with oils, and this book is giving me the encouragement I needed. I like the varied subjects in the book and the explanations that accompany them. I will be getting some supplies in soon, ready to take the plunge!

-- Lynn Woodcock * Amazon *

As a beginner to oil painting this is an excellent book with lots of step-by-step tutorials on a range of subjects as well as general information for artists.
