Beginning Oil is a well-rounded introduction to the art of basic oil painting. This introductory guide to the medium describes and explains everything you'll needed to paint your own oil masterpieces, including tools and materials, color essentials and theory, design and composition, still life painting, landscape painting, plein air painting, and more.

There's no need to be intimidated by the prospect of painting with this classic media; techniques are clearly explained and beautifully illustrated on each page. You will master key concepts with ease, and then put them into practice quickly.

Dry, repetitive exercises on blank canvases are a thing of the past with Beginning Oil. This collection of step-by-step exercises are your instructor as you learn by mimicing and practicing each technique within a larger work, making oil painting approachable and accessible, and most importantly, fun!
