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 painted the white parts of the tail first, going around the whole edge with a fine brush, brushing in the actual feathers as they contrasted against the background. I then broke up the tail area with sections of the orange light. Next came the slightly darker purples, then the real darks to further break up the feathers. It still needs a bit of tweaking but my colours started to become a little muddy, so I'll leave it till next week.
