Description

From the author of the classic Watson-Guptill best seller Problem Solving for Oil Painters comes an essential guide demonstrating the universal oil painting techniques that allow artists expand their horizons, break out of ruts, and master a variety of subjects, including figures, portraits, still life, landscapes, and interiors. Many painters limit themselves to a particular genre out of habit or fear, but in The Absolute Oil Painter, art instructor Gregg Frederick Kreutz reveals how connected oil painting techniques are no matter what subject an artist tackles. Arranged by essential artistic focal points, each chapter reveals the challenges and rewards that painters face when covering specific genres. Through step-by-step lessons and examples from the works of oil painting masters past and present, Kreutz shows how artists can strengthen their skillset for one type of subject matter by painting in another area they may not be as familiar with. This comprehensive breakdown of oil painting provides all of the tools and encouragement painters need to successfully take on any type of oil painting.
