Description

“The Painter’s Method and Materials” is a comprehensive guide to all things painting, dealing with everything from how to use use pigments in tempera to water-colour, mural painting, the theories of light and colour, and much more. This timeless volume will prove to be an invaluable resource for painters both new and old, and it would make for a marvellous addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: “The Mediums Used in Painting”, “The Written Evidence on Early Painting Methods in Oil”, “Wood Panels and Canvas”, “The Pigments Used in Painting (contd.)”, “The Behaviour of White Light”, “Colour and the Prism”, “Linseed Oil, Walnut Oil, and Poppy Oil”, “How to Paint Oil Pictures”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new the original text and artwork.
