Expanded from its original version as an in class text, this information packed book takes an empirical approach to solving many of the common challenges associated with oil painting. Exploring aspects such as the effects of materials, lighting, composition, color, and drawing, Tim Rees's "Problem Solving" helps artists get past the technicals of oil painting and get to the business of making art. The book contains 26 black and white plates of the author's work and plentiful illustrations to illuminate the text, taking the reader through the format of Rees's 5 week class taught at the Palette and Chisel Academy of Art. This is followed by optional assignments for the reader to complete, as well as an appendix of useful problem solving information that would arise occasionally throughout the course. With concepts that apply across any style of realism, this practical companion is an invaluable tool for those wishing to sort through the complex world of oil painting.
