From capturing light and reflections in water, to building up the vibrant colours of a Mediterranean landscape or the delicate mood of morning mist, this book shows how to create landscape paintings in oils that are filled with compelling atmosphere and interest. David Crane offers easy instruction, inspiration and step-by-step demonstrations covering all the techniques required to create beautiful pictures, allowing the reader to overcome the common misconceptions associated with using oil paints. Each of the three stunning projects is broken down into a number of easily achievable steps, so that even those new to the medium of oils can produce beautiful, detailed landscapes of their own. Reflecting David's fascination for the interplay of light within the context of a painting, his imaginative use of colour, and his more recent exploration into the applications of impasto, there a many examples of the author's own work throughout the book to both instruct and inspire.

About the Author

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
