Learn how to capture the effects of radiant light and shadow in oil In this insightful 32-page book, accomplished painter Tom Swimm shows aspiring artists how to recognize and express the dynamic effects of light in luminous oil paintings. Tom demonstrates how to get started through sketching, toning a support, and establishing a value underpainting. He then explains special techniques, such as portraying light and shadows, expressing time of day, and rendering reflective surfaces. He also reveals tricks on creating brilliant compositions--from simplifying complex subjects and creating bold textures to telling a compelling story through a seemingly ordinary scene. Best of all, the vivid, full-color illustrations and innovative tips from the artist inspire readers to infuse their own paintings with light and color.
