The equivalent of a foundation course in traditional oil painting for beginning to intermediate level artists, this in-depth book uses the still life as a practical way to master oil techniques. The still life is a practical, forgiving genre as it does not require the likeness of a portrait or the accurate proportions of the figure and, unlike the landscape, it doesn’t change with the weather. Instead, it gives aspiring artists ample time to study and the opportunity to look closer. It can be used as a purely formal subject for drawing and painting techniques, or a platform for emotional expression using personal symbolism and imagery. However, though the still life is used throughout as a teaching tool, this is first and foremost a book about oil painting. It begins with simple compositions that build to more complex arrangements. Starting with essential information on how to best set up your studio—including lighting, equipment, materials (paints, solvents, brushes, mediums), and preparing your canvas and paper for oil painting—Still Life Painting Atelier then offers concrete lessons in a logical progressive sequence, with step-by-step illustrations, finished paintings, diagrams and tips. Chapters cover: • How to address composition through thumbnail sketches and line drawings • Using underpainting to study the characteristics of light and shade • The basics of color theory and color mixing • How to use a variety of brushes to create sharp and soft edges • Techniques that are helpful when painting metal and glass • How to apply glazing and scumbling to bring luminosity and texture

The book is divided into 15 chapters, and as the title suggests, it is planned as a 15-days course wherein all the relevant aspects of drawing and painting have been explained in simple and lucid language with hundreds of illustrations and diagrams. The students while pursuing the course will gradually learn the importance of lines -- thin, thick, straight, dotted, curved, zigzag, horizontal, cross, slanting, etc. They will appreciate the role of shape, light, texture, balance, harmony, contrast, rhythm, tone, emphasis, span, colors, etc. They will develop a perspective and a point of view and will be able to distinguish between light and highlight, shade and shadow. The book, it is hoped, will be found useful by all those persons, young or old, professionals or amateurs, who have some taste, love for art and artistic creations.
