Welcome to my art blog. I am
a professional artist/art teacher.
Here you can follow my free art
lessons where I give instructions
and advice on how to paint in oils.

Paint books on Amazon & Itunes,
Visit my website (www.howtooilpaint.info) where, with my fellow artist Jo,
we give more great tips on how to paint with oils.
I added the flowers in the foreground straight from the Permanent Rose tube of paint. They were dabbed in lightly with a round brush, adding white to the rose as I went. I'm keeping this foreground slightly out-of-focus so that the viewer looks past it into the main part of the painting which is the creek itself.
