The equivalent of a foundation course in traditional oil painting for beginner to intermediate level artists, this in-depth book uses the still life as a practical, forgiving genre as it does not require the likeness of a portait or the accurate proportions of the figure and, unlike the landscape it doesn't change with the weather. Instead it gives aspiring artists ample time to study and the opportunity to look closer. It can be used purely as a formal subject for drawing and painting techniques, or a platform for emotional expression using personal symbolism and imagery. Starting with essential information on how to best set up your studio - lighting, equipment, material, and preparing your canvas and paper for oil painting, the book then offers concrete lessons in a logical progressive sequence, with step-by-step illustrations, finished paintings, diagrams and tips.
