Product Description

In The Oil Painting Course You''ve Always Wanted , author Kathleen Staiger presents crystal clear, step-by-step lessons that build to reinforce learning. Brush control, creating the illusion of three dimensions, foolproof color mixing, still-life painting, landscapes, and portraits--every topic is covered in clear text, diagrams, illustrations, exercises, and demonstrations.

Everyone from beginning hobby painters, to art students, to BFA graduates has questions about oil painting. Here at last are the answers!

About the Author

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

How does an artist translate what she or he sees into a painting? It isn''t as simple as plunking down two apples or looking out the window and then copying what you see.
This lesson is all about what goes into making an interesting painting. It will show you how to effectively arrange your subject, how to accurately sketch the subject onto the canvas, and how to successfully develop and finish the painting. Our subject will be a simple still life.
This lesson is divided into four parts. In the first part you will learn how to make your painting interesting and then apply what you learn to the arrangement of your chosen fruit or vegetables. In the second part you will learn how to draw your objects accurately onto the canvas. In the third part you will be guided in the painting of your still life; we will use what you have learned about color and shading in the previous lessons to paint fruit that looks as if you could pick it off the canvas.In the final part I will demonstrate standard painting procedures and paint a still life.

The book is aptly named. I started using a book on watercolor painting about 2 years ago and it taught the painter how to mix colors and everything up to fur texture, glass and skin tones for portraits. Since the solvent for watercolor is simply water, I was relaxed, learning to work with the brushes and color. I wanted to paint with oil, but was concerned about the solvent and all of the additional media used in oil. This author takes her students through all the steps with care. Kathleen has explained everything and demonstrates in pictures all the steps she is trying to get across to the student. This is an excellent book and I''m very happy with this purchase. I recommend the book to anyone who would like to become proficient in oil painting. And if the price of paints and other supplies are holding you back check out the substantial discounts is Jerrys Artarama. Happy painting!.

I wish I would have had this book years ago. I wanted to learn how to paint in college, and I took a class with an instructor who didn’t teach us anything about paint! I didnt have experience with oils, didn’t know how they worked, didn’t understand anything about mixing colors, didn’t know what brush to use, and basically I fumbled my way through the class frustrated and disappointed. After that class I gave it up, and until recently didn’t touch paints again. But I’ve always had this nagging feeling to try again, so I got online, saw the title of this book and ordered it. It is a total game-changer for me! I started reading it and it has so much information about so many things that were a mystery to me. It really is the Oil Painting Class I’ve always wanted. I’m working my way through the lessons and I’m actually excited about painting everyday. I am really glad I found this book and recommend it to anyone who is interested in trying oil painting.

Too detailed for Kindle reader
Reviewed in the United States on February 11, 2019
If you order this quite good book, get the printed...not Kindle...version. It''s necessary to flip back and forth as you learn the techniques, and to compare illustrations often, which is MUCH EASIER in print in this case vs. electronic version.

At least a well made book not self oriented which explains you all in details without tralala or chichi. The tittle for once does not mislead the readers, you will definitively find an answer to your questions as students or painting amateurs. Full of tips, tricks, and exceptions it is also a book that art critic students should get to understand how the artist created distance, where the focus point(s) is/are in the painting, etc. If u had to buy a book it would be this one, point. K. Lochen Staiger takes us by the hand and accompanies us along a beautiful percourse where the shop list equipment is supplied, light, shadows or color mixes are developed and illustrated, the why and the how are clearly defined, explained and demonstrated through various exercizes to improve any kind of readers'' painting skills. Bravo maestra for having taken the time to do such a bible in order to share it with us. I am so grateful, thank you.

I have many books on oil painting and have watched many Youtube vids. But for beginner oil painters, this one tops them all. Her lessons are simple, you''ll learn to paint shapes, etc....and how to mix paint....and basic oil colors and values, etc. She also helps you through a few complete works and you have some nice paintings by the end of the book. The book is worth every penny and then some. If you''re interested in oil painting, do yourself a favor and get it, along with some basic supplies....which the author guides you with also.

As the Title Says.........
Reviewed in the United States on October 2, 2016
This is the book I was looking for when I bought the other thirty or so. It is clear, straightforward and a pleasure to read as well as an excellent guide. I highly recommend it especially for beginners like I am. I expect that I will still be using it in the coming years.

Good Instruction.
Reviewed in the United States on July 7, 2018
Good instruction. I frankly got bored and a little following her step-by-step demonstrations, copying someone else’s work, but it was good discipline for me. I learned a lot from Ms. Staiger. Thank You.

I think I will enjoy this
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 28, 2020
I read through the book to get a feel for the process of oil painting and I was not disappointed. As a beginner I am now reading it again but will do the lessons as I go along, so it may take some time to finish it. I like it.

Fantastic -The best teach yourself manual ever !
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 12, 2020
I have purchased a number of self help art manuals and DVD''s , this is by far the best I''ve had. It very clearly states both the theory and practice of painting in oils and follows a logical step by step process- I''ve learnt more from this book than all the others combined !
