A beginner’s guide to painting with oils

Painting with oils is not as easy as the TV shows and how-to books make it out to be. On my first attempt over the weekend, I was surprised to discover that the paint doesn’t move as smoothly over canvas as I imagined it to be.

That was the tricky bit. I haven’t tried adding a layer yet, but that comes next. The best part about painting in oils is that you can color over an existing color – which is exciting because mistakes can be turned into a feature! Try doing that with water colors…

Watch out, MFH. You’ve got competition 🙂
