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.
We are just slowly dabbing away at the standing camel's blankets. Remember that any dips or folds in the material will have a dark shadow, and anything that sticks out will have a highlight. Dab with a small, round, bristle brush to give a woolly texture. I washed in the background with some left-over Yellow Ochre and turps just to see what the colour would look like - I haven't quite decided what to do with my background yet!
