Oil paint is such a responsive and versatile medium that no two painters need use it in exactly the same way, and since its invention in Renaissance times it has never lost its popularity with artists. Amateurs also find it appealing, not only because it is enjoyable to use but also because mistakes can be easily rectified, yet in many cases mistakes would not occur if the individual had a sound knowledge of technique.
In the A-Z section of this book, Jeremy Galton explains how to build up a painting, how and when to work “wet into wet”, and more.
You can’t go wrong with art supplies: Made with cold pressed Linseed Oil, Holbein Artists’ Oil Colors achieve a consistent viscosity across the entire palette, offering excellent lightfastness and permanence.

Traditional Oil Painting helps artists master the secrets of realistic painting to create work that will rival that of the masters.
