Robert has just received a copy of his new book by 'The Crowood Press' and should be available on or before 6th February. This book deals with the many aspects of oil painting and a large proportion of the 'plein air' paintings were undertaken with a limited palette of colours, see our DVD with Robert, 'Oil Sketching On Location'. The following is taken from the back cover and gives a resume of the books content.
'Oils are an extremely versatile and immediate medium, enabling the artist to express themselves in a variety of creative ways. They are relatively easy to use, suitable for both the beginner, or more experienced painter.
This book is a comprehensive study of how oils can be used to capture light, colour and texture in a wide range of subject matter. It includes well over two hundred illustrations, including eleven 'Step by Step' demonstrations and discusses the entire painting process from materials, inspiration, subject selection through to the finished painting. Throughout, emphasis is given to the importance of good drawing, composition, tone, colour and the need for constant assessment, all of which are vital to the success of any piece of work.'
