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.
Remember your light source when doing these chickens. It's coming from behind, so with Ricca, most of the shadow area is facing the viewer. The tail then should be fairly dark, which will strengthen the white highlight that edges the feathers. I'll probably reinforce the highlights again when it is dry with just white paint.
