Still Life Painting Atelier Book Description :

The equivalent of a foundation course in traditional oil painting for beginning to intermediate level artists, this in-depth book uses the still life as a practical way to master oil techniques.

However, though the still life is used throughout as a teaching tool, this is first and foremost a book about oil ...
