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'm trying to give the leaves in this painting a strong, translucent glow. To do this, the highlights need to be fairly strong and clean - straight from the tube even. For the green highlights, I'm using Chrome Green and the yellows are Cadmium Yellow. Don't over-use your white as this washes the colours out.
