Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really like this book: it offers lots of great technical advice above and beyond the usual 'types of equipment' seen in many books, and contains around 11 painting demonstrations. (I say 'around' in case I mis-counted!) These generally only give about 4 or 5 different stages with fairly small pictures, but they should be more than enough to point you in the right direction, and the accompanying text is detailed enough to tell you not only what you need to do, but why.

There are a great many examples of the artist's own work, many of which are used to demonstrate various issues such as composition, tone and colour - and I really like his style. And unlike some books which have great illustrations on the cover but far more disappointing ones inside - the paintings are consistently very good throughout.

While I'm sure a beginner would get a great deal from this book, I believe there is also a lot that would interest both intermediate and more experienced painters too. All in all a great book, for anyone interested in painting in oils!

This is an excellent book: it is concise, clear and very informative. I am an art school graduate of some vintage, who has continued to paint for longer than I care to remember, yet I think I almost learned more from this book than I did from art school, certainly about painting landscapes. The author has included quite a number of step-by-step examples showing how to build up different types of landscape studies and, if you follow precisely what he says, you will, I think, be well on the way to producing work in your own style that you find satisfying. Even more important, you will be able to build on the system the author outlines and develop it in any number of different ways. First class.

Format: Paperback
This is a very good manual for landscape painters in oils, perhaps not for the very inexperienced painter as the demos are not totally step-by-step, but are rather indications of how to proceed in 3 or 4 steps per picture. I really love Robert Brindley's painting style and the way he captures various beautiful light effects in mostly fairly small formats. There are numerous examples of completed paintings on nearly every page so the book is a joy to browse through. In my opinion it is strongest in the sections on subject choice and inspiration generally, so it would be a very good book to turn to for encouragement if you are going through a fallow period. There is also advice on how to paint with exhibitions and potential buyers in mind, regarding choice of subject, size and proportion of the support, and tips on framing economically.

I would only recommend this book if you are just starting out with oils. It contains basic information but lacks more advanced advice and techniques for the more advanced oil painter. In fact it just seems the same as countless other basic oil painting books that are available. I would like to have seen more in depth techniques shown and less of the artists own paintings, the majority of which are small plein air oils on textured board/canvas. If you want to paint in a loose method out of doors you may find the book quite useful.
The actual quality of the book itself is very good with nice paper and excellent reproductions of the paintings.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is well presented and full of beautiful paintings. There are also a few useful but quite sketchy demonstrations. On the downside I found the text repetitive, full of the usual obvious cliches about painting in general. The amount of useful technical information and novel ideas is negligible and disappointing. This could be a useful addition to one's library of books if all you want is a book full of pictures for general reference and to perhaps provide a motivational impetus but as a text for self-improvement, whether beginner, intermediate or expert, there are far better options available e.g. ASIN:1581800533 Fill Your Oil Paintings with Light and Color.
