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.
Check out my range of How To Oil
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.
The shadows are coming along slowly. For the light shadows, I am using Cobalt, Permanent Rose and Australian Grey, and for the darker shadows on the left, I am using Cobalt and Permanent Rose with a dot of Lemon. Shadows from a photograph can appear quite hard and flat, so just remember to make them softer in your painting with lots of varying tones and colour.
