In this attractive, encouraging and easy-to-follow book, Hazel distils her wealth of experience in art instruction down to a simple process that cuts at once through all the mystique.
Although this is a small book, it packs a punch, and Hazel covers all the basics, both technical and creative. She deals with materials, colours, techniques and subjects concisely and, most importantly, with plenty of illustrations. You'll learn about landscapes, still lifes, people and animals as well as blending, glazing, scumbling and the use of both brushes and knives.
The DVD brings to life some captivating landscapes and characterful animals as well as covering tips and techniques for this stimulating medium.
Hazel is enthusiastic and encouraging at every stage and this set can't fail to convince you to give oils a try.
