Introduction

How do I complete my first oil painting step by step?

Well this book outlines 20 achievable oil painting demonstrations for the beginner featuring landscape art from the simple to the more challenging (taken from my hardback Oil Paintings from the Landscape published by GMC Publications 2003 and which some paintings appear in my other Oil Painting Medic books). Varied subject matter include a stone circle, a church, a cornfield, a lake, a castle, a coast, plus more exotic subject matter as a desert, Toronto, lightning and more. Techniques such as wet-into-wet, impasto and glazing are explored. All demonstrations except for demonstrations 15 and 20 have been completed in alla prima, or in one go. In other words, most paintings can be completed in one session and within a manageable time frame of between one hour and four.

The artist need not shell out a lot of money to complete these demonstrations; in fact, all have been completed with a mere ten oil colours, six brush types, artboards and a few additional materials which could be found in the home. Guidance on what to buy and how to prepare can be found in the first section of this book.

Projects may be tackled in any order but for guidance, are divided into four levels, beginning with level 1 progressing to level 4. The demonstrations have been allocated a level according to complexity rather than difficulty, so you may find a demonstration in level 4, easier than another in level 1.

Each project within the demonstration section of this book is clearly set out. You will find:

An image of the finished painting presenting a challenge.

Between 6 and 10 step by step images of how the painting was completed.

A list of the oil painting materials used for the project.

Corresponding instructions to each image-in-progress on how the painting was done.

Tips along the way.

The preliminary section covers the art materials required for the projects within, as well as guidance on preparing the art materials for the demonstrations. Troubleshooting advice is given at the end of this book if a painting does not work out as planned.

Preparatory Section

Preparation Part 1: Art Materials Required for the Demonstrations

You do not need to purchase an array of art materials to complete the following demonstrations. In fact, you will require no more than the shopping list outlined in this section. The initial expenditure will work out cost-effective as oil paints last years and a mere several tubes of paint, a few mediums and artists’ brushes will serve a dozen oil paintings or so. The following image shows all the oil painting pigments used for the demonstrations which are as follows:

The Pigments

The image shows 37ml tubes of burnt sienna, burnt umber, pthalo blue, ultramarine, viridian, cadmium red, permanent rose, lemon yellow, cadmium yellow (pale) and a 100ml tube of titanium white. Of course, you are free to add or choose alternative pigments as preferred, but try to stick to a recommended brand such as Daler Rowney, Winsor Newton or Grumbacher. Student quality paints will work out cheaper than artist quality and perform almost as well. Artisan’s water-soluble oil paints can be thinned with water instead of solvents, which might be preferable for those who are allergic to oil-soluble mediums.

The Mediums

Mediums alter the properties of the oil paint; linseed oil will thin the paint into an oily glaze, add gloss, flow and retard the paint’s drying time. This makes linseed oil ideal for blending techniques. Impasto medium by contrast will add bulk to the paint, ideal for impasto (the application of thick paint). Liquin, an alkyd-based medium, will thin the paint and add translucency like linseed oil but the crucial difference is that Liquin will accelerate the paint’s drying time as opposed to retarding it. This makes Liquin ideal for applying
