Books on oil painting are relatively thin on the ground and many of them are a lot more general than this. You are therefore likely to approach it with high expectations and it is a pleasure to be able to report that it should certainly meet, perhaps even exceed them. The reproduction is superb, even the full-page images, and details, brushwork and canvas textures are easily visible. The way Eileen works, you will want to look closely and this is possible in every image.
In her new book, Painting the Mountain Landscape, Cumbrian-born artist, Eileen Clark shares her experiences with us. A very detailed (25-step) step-by-step demonstration is included, with clear and practical annotations.
The book is very thorough and filled with examples, exercises and demonstrations as well as clear and extended instructions and discussions of approaches and working methods. It’s definitely a worthwhile addition to any landscape artist’s library shelf.
