Sumptuous colour and light,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Colour and Light in Oils (Hardcover)
Lovely book - so many 'How to paint' books are by so-so artists but Nicholas Verall's handling of light and colour is wonderful to see. Plenty of tips on paints, mediums, brushes and subjects and many insights into the artists' working methods. My only gripe is that the book could have done with a more detailed 'step-by-step' demonstration to illustrate the use of underpainting and complimentary colours that Verral does so well. Still a good read/insight into oil painting techniques.
