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 like to paint in the eyes of an animal early into the painting, so that you can start to relate to the subject straight away. Then it's usually nose and mouth next. These parts have to be pretty accurate if you are doing someone's pet, otherwise it could look like any other dog.
