Art is not just for the special few but also a wonderful
form of therapy (I call it escapism) to get away from all the
terrible things happening in the world and in our lives and escape
into into a more beautiful world inside ourselves.
There is something very special about painting with oils.
Unfortunately, so many people feel intimidated because it is
supposedly more difficult than other mediums and you need to study
for years before you understand the rules. That is not
There are a few very basic rules. The method I use I learnt
through trial and error over many years and acquired my own way of
painting without disregarding any of the rules. Sometimes, it's the
mistakes that sparks off a wonderful new technique.
We are fortunate today to have many wonderful products so we
don't have to endure smelly thinners and all the other negatives
associated with oil painting.
So, come along and I hope that you will enjoy the wonderful
world of oil painting as much as I do.
