Discover the art of using oils to paint nude figures with this helpful painting manual

The nude has inspired artists for centuries and continues to inspire us today. Alongside a historical study of the nude in painting, this book introduces oil paint and gives advice on techniques when using this challenging and rewarding medium. Capturing the beauty of form and the delicate colors of the figure, it celebrates the powerful images that examine human relationships, personality, and psychology. Topics covered include: a review of the importance and contribution of the nude in painting; instruction on materials, the color palette, and stretching your own canvas; advice on the practicalities of working with a model in the studio; color-mixing exercises to explore color relationships and temperature; and, finally, step-by-step examples that demonstrate the progression of a painting.
