60 Minutes to Better Painting: Improve your Skills in Oils and Acrylic
Concentrating on quick studies allows painters to get to the essence of painting. In this book, Craig Nelson lists and explains the nine advantages to doing quick studies: editing, brush confidence, painting new subjects, composition exploration, colour exploration, exploring various lighting effects, trial before a larger painting, basic practice, and recreation. The nine purposes for quick studies are the organising structure for this book, with explanations, examples and step-by-steps provided for each purpose. Nelson begins by introducing the idea behind the quick studies, the materials needed, and the step-by-step process for the 25, 40 and one-hour paintings. After this, the nine purposes are practiced with step-by-step demos. Oil painters, acrylic painters and painters in any opaque medium who want to build their confidence and paint faster and better will want to have this book.
