This is a selection of some of the books and DVDs on the language and technical skill development of oil painting that I have found valuable during my painting career. Some of them are for the experienced or even advanced painter and others for the absolute beginner. A great book is a mentor and a friend for life, a source of inspiration and knowledge. What is written inside never goes out of date as the true value of an art book can only be discovered over the course of many years as one develops both mind and skill.
