Learn how to paint like a professional with this easy to follow Beginners Guide to Oil Painting.
In this book, Beginner Series Book 1, we introduce the medium using the humble orange. Barb has found in her 25 years of teaching that by doing this simple shape as their first project, a learner will gain an understanding of many of the fundamental points to painting in realism.
The second subject, two frangipanis, will move forward with different challenges, including a soft focus background. We show you how to use gentle shades for the background, which compliment the flowers where the more intricate work will be concentrated.
Painting in Realism
The 4th of our intermediate series, How to Oil Paint an Australian Kookaburra, introduces the student to painting a bird. The Laughing Kookaburra is a handsome bird with the unique call that sounds like laughter. We enjoyed the challenges of creating this new work and we're sure you will too. As with all our series, we give step by step instructions including what we used and descriptions of styles used to create each feature of the painting.
