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.
Pick out your darkest tones and paint these in with a "turpsy" wash. Lighten the mix as you go, leaving white areas for the whites, until the canvas is covered. This will help with building up the shadows and highlights with a finer brush later.
