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'll start playing around with the orange tones now using Ultramarine Blue, Cadmium Yellow Deep and Cadmium Red. Start with the darks, then add some white for a midtone orange. I want to get rid of the white canvas now so we'll also brush in the toes. Make the orange a little more green in colour for the toes. This is just a light coat of paint before we start the real detail.
