Painting Light in Oils, Hardback Book


Peter Wileman is one of the most dynamic oil painters in the UK today and is currently President of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters.

In Painting Light in Oils he demonstrates how to create atmospheric landscapes in oils with stunning effects.

Light is what motivates so many painters. It excites the eye and radiates an energy that transforms an otherwise ordinary scene into something rather special. In his first book, Peter Wileman shows how he gets inspiration for his exciting landscapes and seascapes, working both on location and in the studio.

Several step-by-step demonstrations show how he captures light and shade on his canvas with such amazing effect.

There are also sections on tone and colour harmony, reflected and changing light and how to paint from both sketches and photographs. If you want to loosen up your oil painting and achieve landscapes and seascapes that are full of atmosphere, this is the book for you.
