Oil Painting Tutorial for Beginners

Out of the Mist

Oil Painting Tutorial

Painting ‘En Plein’ in the Lake District, enables me too see many different weather moods, especially after a rainstorm. A sudden down pour can lead to amazing atmospheric conditions. A cloud inversion lifts to reveal subdued tonal shades of magical Lakeland shapes with mountains dramatically appearing from beneath a cloud of mist. I enjoy capturing these in Watercolour and also Oils. Inspired by Turners Oil studies he painted evocative shapes glowing with lightness and translucency giving wonderful emotional meaning. Using Oils with a lighter touch, fading and softening can be perfect for moody mountain scenery.

Why not have a go, with my easy step by step oil painting project. Learn the secrets of oils, which materials to use and many different techniques are covered in step by step with plenty of clear photographs sent to you direct by email.
