A comprehensive study of how oils can be used to capture light, color, and texture in a wide range of landscape settings

Landscape painting attracts countless artists, as its diversity—enhanced by the weather, special lighting conditions, and seasonal change—offers the painter an infinite variety of subject matter. Oils are an extremely versatile and immediate medium, enabling artists to express themselves in a variety of creative ways. They are relatively easy to use, suitable for both the beginner and the more experienced painter. This guide includes 11 step-by-step demonstrations and discusses the entire painting process, from materials, inspiration, and subject selection to the finished painting. Throughout, emphasis is given to the importance of good drawing, composition, tone, and color; and the need for constant assessment; all of which are vital to the success of any piece of work.
