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 trees on the hill have the light filtering through them, giving the trees a very orange colour. I used the Burnt Sienna for this with a touch of Cobalt to darken them up. Lower down on the horizon, I added some yellow to the foliage to create a greenish hue. Use a fine brush with liquin to paint in the trunks and branches of the trees, making them just stand out against the soft background.
With my light orange mix I lightly painted in the rays of light across the rocks for a guide to painting them in later.
