Gorilla – Starting Oil Painting

Hi everyone – happy new year!

As you can see from the latest update I have now started to go over the acrylic underpainting with oil paints. This is only the blocking in stage, so as usual I will go over everything with a few layers of oils, increasing the details and adjusting colours with each new layer.

As usual you can see more update photos on my wildlife art site.

    Hi Jason!
    Hope your holidays were excellent, and I wish you lots of success in 2009!
    I am looking forward to more teaching cds, and may I make a suggestion? Would it be possible to explain more techniques in achieving your backgrounds and foregrounds, and how you make a decision on colors? Your present lessons have helped me achieve so much in my own paintings, and for me, quite often I have problems determining color mixture for scenes. Maybe you can enlighten myself, as well as others who share this same dilemma. When will your new cds be completed?
    I am looking forward to more of your insight, Jason!

    Sincerely,

      Sounds like a good idea Cheryl, I’m thinking along the lines of doing a “complete oil painting beginners” CD/Ebook to start – and I will cover everything from selecting paints etc to basic colour mixing and seeing true colours. I plan then to do probably a novice and advanced CD – those two will concentrate on wildlife more – the beginners one will be more general painting.
