Concentrating on quick studies allows painters to get to the essence of painting. In this book, Craig Nelson lists and explains the nine advantages to doing quick studies: editing, brush confidence, painting new subjects, composition exploration, colour exploration, exploring various lighting effects, trial before a larger painting, basic practice, and recreation. The nine purposes for quick studies are the organising structure for this book, with explanations, examples and step-by-steps provided for each purpose. Nelson begins by introducing the idea behind the quick studies, the materials needed, and the step-by-step process for the 25, 40 and one-hour paintings. After this, the nine purposes are practiced with step-by-step demos. Oil painters, acrylic painters and painters in any opaque medium who want to build their confidence and paint faster and better will want to have this book.
