Working in both oil and pastel, Brian explains the use of colour and the importance of perspective as well as how to capture shadows and use contrast to provide both depth and impact. Even if this is not your choice of medium, the basic principles and many of the techniques apply. This is something you can use regardless of your personal painting style.
The book is a series of examples and demonstrations that build up gradually into a thorough course that you can either work through to develop your skills progressively, or dip into for a particular topic or technique. Subject matter includes landscapes and waterscapes as well as smaller vistas and urban scenes.
Light is a subject that's never the same twice and it can be a lifetime's study. This is a book which will help you on the road to successful painting and an understanding of the many elements of this fascinating topic.
