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.

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 have finally finished the portrait of my mum who passed away last June. She loved camping, so I set the scene on Fraser Island with her much loved Cockatoo called Fred in the background. Fred loved to travel too, and had been around Australia a few times with my parents. For me, this portrait isn't just a picture, but tells a bit more about the person being painted.
