Publisher Comments:

Whether you've taken art classes or never held a brush before, An Introduction to Oil Painting will show you everything you need to know about working in this challenging — but rewarding — medium. Easy-to-follow projects, shown as they were created, teach the essentials while inspiring the student to tackle increasingly complex techniques. Each volume of The DK Art School series focuses on a specific art medium and subject, so you can choose precisely what you want to learn. When complete, the series will offer the widest choice of specific subjects — from acrylic figure to oil portrait, and from pastel still life to watercolor landscape. Build your own private Art School in your home library.

Synopsis:

Most art instruction books are much too general for the beginner. But every volume of The DK Art School gives the reader the precise information needed to create a delightful work of art.
