Sci-Fi & Fantasy Oil Painting Techniques

In 2008 Pat and Jeannie Wilshire boldly created IlluXCon, the show I'd been waiting all my life for. I decided right then to document the insights, thoughts, and Masterclass techniques used in preparation for each show, to hopefully create a book as unique to artists as IlluXCon is to me. The result is this book. Four years in the making it has been completely re-written based on my previous two books and includes step-by-step stages of a dozen paintings, plus advice along the way for every aspiring oil painter, illustrator and gallery artist following their own dreams....

'The master artist makes it clear that getting the groundwork right is the key to great art...' ImagineFX Magazine '...I can't say enough here--his work reminds me at times of Jose Segrelles, one of the very finest fantasy illustrators ever...His work is AMAZING!' Bud Plant's Art Books
