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.
I'm just showing another image from Lesson No.10 as we continue lightening up the foreshore. Note the direction of the shallow ripples toward the last wave. Reinforce these ripples with darker oranges and purples to create movement. Finally, add more highlights, starting from the centre of the canvas (under the sun) with a very light mix of Lemon and white. Use small dots and dashes - don't go crazy.
