Welcome to my art blog. I am

and advice on how to paint in oils.

All we have to do now is to finish the foreground rocks. I painted mine in the same gold hues as the ones in the background to keep the colours uniform. Make sure the edges are very soft and slightly out-of-focus, as you want the viewer to look past these rocks and into the centre of the painting which is the focal point. They are also in shadow, so I used a purple mix with my oranges to grey off the colours for a muted look. I didn't want these foreground rocks to stand out and take over.
