435339

Full Description

Equally suitable for spontaneous work as well as for large ambitious studio paintings, oils are perhaps the most versatile of all paints. And yet for many painters, their use is shrouded in mystery, while others regard them as"difficult"medium. This book, now back by popular demand, sets out to show that, with proper instruction, nothing could be further fom the truth. The key to mastery of the medium is a full understanding of the constituents of oil painting - binders, dilutents, varnishes, mediums, driers - and their properties, all of which are clearly explained and illustrated with over 200 colour images, backed up by comprehensive information on supports, equipment and techniques. Contents: 1 X 128 Page Paperback Author: Brian Gorst Author Bio - Brian Gorst studied at the Cheltenham School of Art, UK, and at the New York Academy of Art. He has published magazine articles on painting and techniques, and currently teaches painting and drawing at colleges in the west of England. He also lectures on artistic anatomy. Committed to the medium of oils for most of his career, he has exploited its potential in works of still life, portraiture, landscape and figure painting that have been exhibited widely, including in solo shows.
