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.
At last I have started painting one of the rhino's heads. I took this photo at Australia Zoo a while ago, and changed the background to look like it was in Africa. These two are quite young here and don't have the deep wrinkles and deeply marked skin as the older ones get. So, in some ways, they are much easier to paint. The tricky bit is that they had just rolled in some mud, so they are half grey and half Burnt Sienna!
