Discover the art of using oils to paint nude figures with this helpful painting manualThe nude has inspired artists for centuries and continues to inspire us today. Alongside a historical study of the nude in painting, this book introduces oil paint and gives advice on techniques when using this challenging and rewarding medium.

Topics covered include: a review of the importance and contribution of the nude in painting; instruction on materials, the color palette, and stretching your own canvas; advice on the practicalities of working with a model in the studio; color-mixing exercises to explore color relationships and temperature; and, finally, step-by-step examples that demonstrate the progression of a painting.
