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.
We're moving onto the body of the closest flamingo now. Separate the feathers with a light purple mix first, so you know what you're dealing with. Then you can highlight, darken and add some light pinks here and there to ensure the pink is still the dominant colour. I am mixing a dark green to help feather off the edges that meet the water. We want them soft and fluffy.
