Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Oil artists who want to explore glazing with transparent layers of oil paint, or watercolour artists who want to try their hand at oil painting, will find this book helpful. Readers will learn how to attain realism by applying many glazes of transparent colours to build realistic values and create luminescent paintings that glow with colour and give the appearance of looking through stained glass. More than 10 mini demonstrations and 3 extended painting demos that reinforce the mini lessons are woven throughout the chapters. These demos illustrate key concepts, from creating the background, to preserving edges, to establishing form and finally the finished painting.
