"Painting Landscapes in Oils"


Over the centuries, landscape painting has attracted countless artists. Its diversity, enhanced by the weather, special lighting conditions and seasonal change, offers the painter an infinite variety of subject matter.

Oils are an extremely versatile and immediate medium, enabling artists to express themselves in a variety of creative ways. They are relatively easy to use, suitable for both the beginner and the more experienced painter.

This new book is a comprehensive study of how oils can be used to capture light, colour and texture in a wide range of landscape settings.

It even includes eleven step-by-step demonstrations and discusses the entire painting process, from materials, inspiration and subject selection through to the finished painting.

Throughout, emphasis is given to the importance of good drawing, composition, tone and colour, and the need for constant assessment, all of which are vital to the success of any piece of work.

Michael Creese:


Robert Brindley is a talented artist and teacher and this is clearly displayed in his latest book 'Painting Landscapes in Oils'. Profusely illustrated with a very wide variety of subjects, the book is packed with advice for the novice and more experienced painter alike.

Robert takes the reader through the whole process from the selection of materials to framing the finished picture. He advocates the use of three primary colours plus white so that expenditure on paint is limited to the price of four tubes or at most seven when warm and cool colours are included.

The illustrated sections on composition and skies will be found particularly helpful. 

A series of exercises throughout the book is designed to illustrate the use of tone and colour and the 'spotlights' which discuss difficulties wth particular paintings also provide very helpful insights. 

This is not a book to be read at one sitting and then put aside, rather for reference which will provide a constant source of inspiration. Read in conjunction with Roberts DVD - 'Oil Sketching on Location' it provides encouragement and motivation. 

Having been a student of Robert's for many years I am delight to recommend this book.
