  1. I gotta do a shameless plug! SMB, you can delete its if not appropriate and helpful to your readers. This e-book (downloadable) teaches the secrets I use in painting stuff like this. It can be found at my teaching site: oil painting techniques
  2. This has also been a struggle of mine, especially online. If however you would like to go the gallery route, here are some great articles that discuss this entire process. And it does work. I need to update my own blog as I now have had a 4th gallery contact me to represent my work, all based on a mailing of an art package and brochure! Art Marketing 101
  3. Here's a work done of an old southern favorite. As they are now in full bloom here in virginia, I thought I'd post it for your pleasure, comments and critiques. happy painting Interested in learning this technique?
  4. It took years for me to learn some very basic stuff about photographing my art. Todays point and shoot digital cameras are so much better, but be careful, there are some very special features that you really have got to have in order to shoot oil paintings. One feature that will allow you to get about 95% glare out of the print! Using a CPL filter, circular polarizing lens. More info here on how to get the lens for your camera, or at least what to look for on the camera to see if you can even add it!

  11. Here's a new piece I've started with the 7 layer flemish technique for those interested in this classic style of painting! Let me know what you think! This is a 400 year old technique that really works. You can get more details on this technique on my site Easy Painting Techniques! When I get the color layers going, I'll post them here too so you can follow this pieces progression. Thanks for a great forum!
