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.
