Translated from the Spanish and featuring drawings and exercises by nine Spanish artists, this unusually good introduction to oil painting is at once practical, approachable, and inspiring. Instructions tell how to mix oil colors, work with solvents and dryers, use brushes and spatulas to shape paint, and execute more advanced techniques like chiaroscuro. Exercises cover the characteristics of warm, cool, and neutral colors and illustrate how to approach figure drawing, still lifes, and landscapes. Highly recommended for all public libraries.
