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.
Just showing a close-up of how I've re-darkened the shadow colours under the head feathers with a purple mix. With a fine brush and some liquin, I have added the dark markings again, then went lighter with fewer strokes. Lastly I have picked out some very fine feathers with an almost white mix.
