Oil Painting for Dummies

One of my "teachers", Anita Giddings, co-author of Oil Painting for Dummies  describes, in this video, painting a copper pot in a still life. If you only had one book available to you in order to learn how to paint, I would pick this one, without a doubt.  It's so comprehensive and takes any newbie through all the steps necessary to develop your painting skills or improve upon those that you already have. I read it some years back and now I'm on my second reading and have picked up new tidbits that I missed the first time. This is a great book for all of us self-taught artists and I highly recommend it!
