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.
After giving the rocks more detail i.e. darkening darks and adding some highlights, I let the paint dry. The "chromatic abberation" effect from the sun is painted with a mix of Red Light, Cadmium Yellow Deep and a touch of Ultramarine Blue. I then mixed this with some Liquin so that it was very translucent and firstly followed my "sun lines" spreading the paint wider as I came down toward the water. You only need a touch of paint on the brush, circling it around the rocks as you go.
