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, both because it is enjoyable to use and because mistakes can be so easily rectified.

Step-by-step sequences show how to paint a range of themes, from still life to portraits and landscapes, with advice on more difficult subjects.
