Description - Colour and Light in Oils by Robin Capon

Often seen as dark and gloomy, oils can, in fact, be used to create colourful and light paintings that are wonderfully expressive. One significant characteristic of oil paint is its richness and depth of colour, something that is of particular interest to Nicholas Verrall.

Illustrated throughout, the book covers: the medium of oils; understanding oils; materials and equipment; painting techniques; and the studio
