Three stunning step-by-step demonstrations Expert tips and guidance on materials, composition, perspective, drawing, and use of colour and tone Numerous examples of the author's work to provide inspiration and guidance
David Crane was born in Hull, UK, and now works from his own studios in both the UK and Spain. His early childhood was spent in East Africa and it was there that his love of the countryside first inspired him to portray the landscape around him on canvas. In 1978 he completed an honours degree and it was then that David began to seriously pursue his love of painting, leaving his work in industry to begin painting professionally. He has taught numerous art classes, given demonstrations throughout the UK and is always keen to pass on to others his years of experience as an oil painter. David works in fine detail, in the traditional classic style, and strongly believes a painting should have character and 'presence'. He is fascinated by the interplay of light within a painting, and more recently has begun to explore a greater variety and subtler use of colour in his work. David's artwork is collected worldwide, the majority in the UK, USA, Japan and Australia.
This book includes three step-by-step instructions to paint vibrant oil paintings. David Crane offers expert tips and techniques to achieve effects. Many examples of the author's style are given including the front over, which unfortunately does not form part of the step-by-step instructions. It's the painting I fancied doing most. A woodland path, winter stream and little farmhouse are the subjects you can paint using this handy 64 page book.-KarenPlatt.co.uk
