Oil paint is such a responsive and versatile medium that no two painters need use it in exactly the same way, and since its invention in Renaissance times it has never lost its popularity with artists. Amateurs also find it appealing, not only because it is enjoyable to use but also because mistakes can be easily rectified, yet in many cases mistakes would not occur if the individual had a sound knowledge of technique. In the A-Z section of the book, Jeremy Galton, a practising painter, explains how to build up a painting, how and when to work "wet into wet", and how to make your brushwork describe forms and textures. He also provides a wealth of stimulating ideas such as combining oil paints with other media, mixing paint with sand and sawdust and applying it with knives, rags or the fingers. In the second part of the book, Themes, you can see the techniques in context. Illustrated with a gallery of paintings by well-known artists as well as informative step-by-step demonstrations, it shows how each person applies his or her knowledge of oil painting techniques to the interpretation of a subject, whether landscape, portrait or still life.

In Canada, it can be easy to consider landscape painting as cliché, an art form whose time has passed. David Alexander's vibrant, large-scale works show the wonder and possibility that remain undiminished in paintings of the natural environment and breathe new life into the landscape tradition. Gathering together six essays on Alexander, this book provides insight into Alexander's inspiration, creative drive, and the unique engagement with nature that has led him to seek out and paint remote locales across Canada and as far away as Greenland, Iceland, New Mexico, and Argentina. Award-winning writer Sharon Butala contributes an extended meditation on her first encounter with the artist and his work. An interview with Robert Enright reveals Alexander's engagement with tradition, and texts by the late Gilbert Bouchard, Ihor Holubizky, Aðalsteinn Ingólfsson, and Liz Wylie, present a variety of insights into understanding and appreciating his art. A detailed chronology of Alexander's career is included. Reproductions of his major works appear throughout and the essays are illustrated with preliminary paintings and working sketches, conveying insight into his creative process. A valuable discovery for those interested in nature and its artistic renderings, Alexander's art is about conveying an immersion in the landscape. This book allows a similar presence within his lushly painted landscapes, imparting an intimate understanding of his art.
