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.
As you paint your way down the canvas, keep the directional flow of water by placing darks either in lines or dabs. Then you can go back with mid-greens, then lighter greens, blending them in as you go. From that one big ripple where the flamingo is breaking the surface of the water, the lines gradually become further apart and level up as they head toward the bottom of the canvas.
