Bestselling artist and writer Hazel Soan has distilled her teaching into a concise guide that focuses on the things that matter most to aspiring painters. Not only can oil painting techniques be picked up relatively quickly, but the medium is relatively forgiving, allowing novices to easily correct their mistakes. Soan offers advice on materials (keeping things to a minimum), mixing colors, basic brush techniques, and using a palette knife. With the easy-to-follow exercises and demonstrations to hone your skills, you’ll soon move on to still lifes, flowers, animals, landscapes, figures, and portraits.
