Another fantastic addition to the 10 Steps series! Ian Sidaway turns novices into adept artists in just one painting. This unique course guides beginners through the individual elements of a still-life until they've mastered all the necessary techniques for working with oils. Students are virtually taken by the hand and led step-by-step-from laying a solid tonal foundation to adding exquisite finishing touches-through abundant illustrations and concise instructions. And they'll also learn blending, glazing, impasto, and other essential skills. After a close look at composition and three painting projects, emerging artists will be quickly on their way to creating their own masterpieces.
