Traditional Oil Painting: Advanced Techniques and Concepts from the Renaissance to the Present

Elliott, Virgil

The only book that lets artists explore the highest levels of realistic oil painting.


“This is not a “how-to” book; it is an excellent reference book to keep within reach when you are working. The older books are so obscure, so difficult to try to understand…and based on speculation about the techniques and materials used by the masters of the past. Mr. Elliott has kept abreast of discoveries by conservators in the major museums using the most up-to-date, sophisticated technology.” — reviewed by B. Harrison.
