It has now been rediscovered by the fine artist. In this beautiful book, Kevin Scully champions its cause and explores its attributes. He explains how it can be used to exciting and stunning effect when painting still life. Further topics include: understanding and using colour effectively with sections on paint, colour, tone, light and shadow; painting flowers, objects and backgrounds; traditional and contemporary approaches with step-by-step examples and finally, ways to develop your painting and experiment with different styles, exciting compositions and new techniques.
