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.
Always brush reflections downwards starting with the lighter colours first. Reflections generally appear darker in the water. I am using a soft Taklon flat brush size 6 for a smooth look. With the brush on the side, go through everything horizontally with light strokes leaving suggestions of ripples in the water. Wipe your brush off on a rag continually so as not to move the paint too far across. When it dries, we will go back and dab in extra highlights and detail that may have been lost while feathering it off this time.
