Synopsis

How to Paint: Landscapes in Oils by David Crane

From capturing light and reflections in water, to building up the vibrant colours of a Mediterranean landscape or the delicate mood of morning mist, this book shows how to create landscape paintings in oils that are filled with compelling atmosphere and interest. David Crane offers easy instruction, inspiration and step-by-step demonstrations covering all the techniques required to create beautiful pictures, allowing the reader to overcome the common misconceptions associated with using oil paints. Each of the three stunning projects is broken down into a number of easily achievable steps, so that even those new to the medium of oils can produce beautiful, detailed landscapes of their own. Reflecting David's fascination for the interplay of light within the context of a painting, his imaginative use of colour, and his more recent exploration into the applications of impasto, there a many examples of the author's own work throughout the book to both instruct and inspire.

Reviews

This book includes three step-by-step instructions to paint vibrant oil paintings. David Crane offers expert tips and techniques to achieve effects. Many examples of the author's style are given including the front over, which unfortunately does not form part of the step-by-step instructions. It's the painting I fancied doing most. A woodland path, winter stream and little farmhouse are the subjects you can paint using this handy 64 page book.-KarenPlatt.co.uk
