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.

we give more great tips on how to paint with oils.
We'll begin painting the frog starting with the darks. I used Ultramarine Blue and Cadmium Yellow for this. I will then dab in the mid-tones with a bit more yellow added to the mix. Lastly I'll dab in the highlights with a Cobalt and Lemon mix. This is all done with only a thin layer of paint, whilst we work out where our darks and highlights will go.
