To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Like many people I 'dabble' in art. Which is to say I do art when time and inclination permits. I always wanted to try oils though and this is an excellent introduction that explains everything you need to know, Unlike many art books it isn't focussed on a self indulgent showcase for the authors work, but instead shows all the skills and techniques to start working with oils as well as a broader background to art in general.
I own a few art books, but without doubt this is one of the best books I have purchased. It is clear, concise and takes the reader through everything they need to know to start working with oils. It is well written, has many illustrations, tips and guidance and is a great choice for those wanting to explore painting with oils. Recommended..
I am very impressed with this book - very approachable and interesting. I only got it yesterday and it already helped me to paint a couple of landscapes. I am a complete beginner and was very impressed by how easy it can be to paint. Highly recommended!
