The best read on Oil Painting, I've had,
This review is from: Oil Painting Techniques and Materials (Dover Art Instruction) (Paperback)
I would highly recommend this book to any with some experience with oil painting. It's not a step by step, but more a philosophy and tips on painting. It makes a most interesting read, full of meat, not scanty packed with self evident ideas and with illustrations like some more modern books.
This book but for the cover is in black and white, the few plates of paintings and drawings are all black and white, but I imagine that one can obtain colour pics of each one by other means, if the examples in the book aren't up to the job for you...
This is a book you can read and reread, I highly recommend it.

Thank you for the idea of seeking out colour plates if needed! this was the one issue putting me off buying this book
