Overview

This detailed, user-friendly oil painting workbook is a companion to Patrick\u2019s Sci-fi & Fantasy Oil Painting Techniques, and features previously unpublished artworks. Patrick leads us into his studio once again to study further the art of layers, blending, and glazing with oils. With his ever-evolving use of technique, Patrick explores methods for painting various textures — from fabric and fur to gold and flesh — and demonstrates various ways to work solvent free. The sheer scale and breadth of Patrick\u2019s experience, and the wealth of invaluable information he shares, means that no artist, art lover, or art student should be without this volume on their bookshelves.

Reviews

"Patrick is a great writer, with an anecdote for just about every image in the book, and he's often as hilarious as he is insightful . . . If you want to make the jump from digital to oils it's an utter must-have." —Imagine FX

"This is an amazing collection of work in the tradition, and quite as powerful as the best of Boris Vallejo, Frank Frazetta, and I would add Howard Pyle. I can't say enough here—Patrick's work reminds me at times of Jose Segrelles, one of the very finest fantasy illustrators ever. Don't miss this!!" —Bud Plant

"If you're keen to take your knowledge of oils to the next level, then Patrick's book is well worth your time." —Yahya El-Droubie Magazine

His work is collected and published worldwide, and his client list includes such companies as Disney, Lucasfilm and Roc books. Patrick grew up in the city of Belfast, Northern Ireland, during the violent 30-year conflict known as "the Troubles".

Patrick later spent two years in the merchant navy, after which he moved to London and worked as an illustrator for 15 years before travelling the world once more. Today, Patrick is settled in Brisbane, Australia, where he lives with his wife Cathy and their two scruffy dogs. When he's not painting, he teaches art at two universities in the city.
