Praise

“Gregg Kreutz encourages learning to see with clarity and insight,and that’s exactly what this book achieves. I’m an art observer,not an artist, but even I can follow—and admire—Kreutz’s logical,step-by-step approach to making paintings look better.”
—PETER TRIPPI, editor-in-chief, Fine Art Connoisseur magazine

“In Oil Painting Essentials, Gregg Kreutz expands on the teachingsand ideas that he brought forth first in Problem Solving for OilPainters. This new book is rich and colorful with Gregg’s paintings,showing examples of what to strive for and what to avoid whenlearning to paint. The writing is wonderfully clear, providing manyinsights for solving the essential problems art students confront.”
