Hi Everyone

I've just pulled this book off the bookshelf to read again before I tackle the current workshop. Even though I don't paint in oils many of the concepts that the artist/author talks about are relevant to all mediums. 

There is a whole chapter on "Handling Translucent Objects" just what is needed for the cut orange in workshop 7.  Other chapters cover: painting metals, reflections and highlights.

It is a great book and might be in your local library or it is available second hand on Amazon. Just click on the link to see the front cover.

Full title: Painting Sumptuous Vegetables, Fruits & Flowers in Oils
