A course of 29 lessons to help the beginner master the art of oil painting.

Readers are shown how to paint specific subjects, how to tackle problems when painting outdoors and how to paint from photographs. One section of the book is a feature on "what went wrong". These consist of different painting exercises which illustrate all the common pitfalls and how to avoid them. The final section of the book contains a series of step-by-step painting demonstrations with full instructions and a gallery of finished paintings.
