A Word From the Author:

This book is about my passion for luminous color and the process or working with transparent oils. It's also a great resource for watercolor artists transitioning to oil, or for oil artists who want to explore the beauty of glazing with transparent colors. This style of painting is called transparent gazing, it is completely transparent with the only what of the board of canvas to reflect the colors. If you love realism and luminous color, this book will teach you how to use transparent colors to create paintings that will glow." —Arleta Pech

Check Out This Exclusive Sample From Radiant Oils:

Mixing Background Paint: Use a palette knife to mix your neutral or semineutral background colors with a small amount of medium to help it dry faster. Mediums are also great for thinning paint into a lighter, more workable value. MY favorite medium is Walnut Alkyd Medium by M. Graham & Co. It's an environmentally friendly alternative to typical solvents.
