Painting Tip


  1. A person who produces paintings or drawings as a profession or hobby.
  2. A person who practices any of the various creative arts, such as a sculptor, novelist, poet, or filmmaker.
How to start your oil painting:

 Start with a toned ground. It can be grey, brown, red or whatever, and it can be wet or dry. When you prime your canvas with a coloured ground, you won't have to fight the tyranny of white. Leave the fighting of white to the watercolourists. This way, there will be a significant tone on all parts of your canvas--happy accidents will occur, and the ground becomes part of the overall effect.

I like to use a rose color. The tone is your chose experiment with different color grounds. I sometimes just take what ever colors are left over on my palette at the end of the day and tone a few panels for the next week,
