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.
