From award-winning painter David Curtis comes a fabulous on-the-page oil painting course, now in paperback, with all the techniques needed to work outdoors--in every type of weather--as well as in the studio. Through finished pieces and stage-by-stage examples, students learn how to capture the subtle effects of light and mood and achieve expressive, original results. Curtis pays special attention to drawing skills, while his evocative landscapes, coastal scenes, interiors, and figure compositions provide inspiration.
