The Oil Painters Bible by Marylin Scott is a compact book which explains all the materials, techniques and different approaches to painting with oils.
Oil paint is such a responsive and versatile medium that no two painters need use it in exactly the same way, and since its invention in Renaissance times it has never lost its popularity with artists. Amateurs also find it appealing, both because it is enjoyable to use and because mistakes can be so easily rectified.
Step-by-step sequences in The Oil Painters Bible by Marylin Scott show how to paint a range of themes, from still life to portraits and landscapes, with advice on more difficult subjects. There are also suggestions for presenting your finished paintings and how to go about getting your work seen and exhibited.
