Overview


Each title in Barron's growing series of 101 Techniques art instruction manuals focuses on a specific art media and teaches students and amateur artists through purely visual means. Relying on a progression of step-by-step captioned illustrations, the exercises in this book teach the basics of virtually every technique an artist needs to know in order to master oil painting. Exercises apply to various styles of brushwork, application of pigments with a palette knife, portrait and figure painting, landscapes, water scenes, and much more. Full color illustrations throughout.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Guides in the "101 Techniques" series are designed to foster repeated practice and improve skills and confidence. "101" refers to the number of short illustrated and captioned step-by-step exercises included, all of which are given either a color-coded "beginner" or "advanced" tag on the table of contents page, allowing readers to chart their own nonlinear path through the book as the authors suggest. VERDICT These numerous exercises cover a broad range of possibilities offered by the medium of oil paint, but readers will need to look elsewhere for more in-depth and complex projects.
