Colour and Light in Oils Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Often seen as dark and gloomy, oils can, in fact, be used to create colourful and light paintings that are wonderfully expressive.

One significant characteristic of oil paint is its richness and depth of colour, something that is of particular interest to Nicholas Verrall.

'Colour and Light in Oils' includes information, demonstrations and many inspirational finished paintings to help painters understand the value of colour in interpreting ideas with feeling and impact.

Illustrated throughout, the book covers: the medium of oils; understanding oils; materials and equipment; painting techniques; and the studio
