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 have finally finished my first grandchild's portrait. I filled in some of the background around his head and shoulder and feathered that off into his shirt, skin and hair. This is a bit tedious as you want the background soft and the figure sharp. Re-wetting the two edges and blending them into each other requires patience as you remix all the colours. Only 2 more kids to go!
