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.
Now we are adding the greens. We've mixed Cobalt and Lemon together to make a bright green which immediately enhances the whole painting. I have a dark, medium and a light green mixed on my palette before I start. Using a No.0 pointed taklon brush I quickly stroke the different tones of greens to give the impression of leaves. Just make sure the cup at the back is a little more out-of-focus than the teapot in front, so feather off these colours slightly as you go.
