Portrait Painting in Oil: 10 Step by Step Guides from Old Masters: Learn to Paint Portraits via Detailed Oil Painting Demonstrations

by Rachel Shirley
pubblicato da Rachel Shirley


Portraiture would seem an art form reserved for the most intrepid and experienced of artists.

But this oil painting guidebook aims to break down this seemingly exacting subject matter into manageable pieces.

Within you will find step-by-step instructions on completing 10 old master portraits in oil. Leaving no stone unturned, portrait painting would seem more possible.

Each demonstration comprises an overview of a particular oil painting technique to be explored, in-depth step-by-step instructions and (on average) 16 images in progress.

The old masters featured include Botticelli, Delacroix, Gauguin, Velazquez, Wright of Derby, Jacques-Louis David, Rossetti and Vermeer. An additional demonstration features a modern-day portrait.

Subjects of various ages, sexes and ethnicity help the developing portraitist get to grips with portraying most skin types in painting.

As well as these demonstrations, preliminary sections offer guidance on the art materials required, preparing for oil painting and a personal view of portrait painting. At the back of this book can be found remedial techniques for portraiture, a troubleshooting guide and a glossary.

These features make this book an invaluable guide for the beginner as well as the developing portraitist.

My other book 'Skin Tones in Oil: 10 Step by Step Guides from Old Masters' similarly outlines demos on painting portraits, and also figures. Source material include Da Vinci, Michelangelo and Caravaggio.

A troubleshooting guide for portraitists 'Why do My Skin Tones Look Lifeless Plus 25 Solutions to other Portrait Painting Peeves' might also be of interest.

Book's statistics: Approximately 26,500 words and 218 colour images.
