About the Book
An advanced book on how to paint in oilcolour paint in step by step stages. The subject is Mount Cook, the highest peak in New Zealand, and the student is expected to apply my technique to their own artwork. There is a gallery of selected artworks as a supplement, but these are in watercolour. This is a book packed with information for students that want stimulation and encouragement, and so this would be an excellent gift for a budding artist.
