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.
Well, we're continuing on down the steps using our palette knife and fine-tuning areas with a wide, flat brush. You can see, even in the photo below, how thick the paint is. It gives the painting depth and texture without you trying too hard! I have gone around the cat with a brush so that the paint is thin on the edges. If you leave a thick edge and try to paint over it, it may crack later when dry.
