Art tutor in West London - portfolio and painting help
My main practice involves painting with oils on canvas, linen and board. I start with a basic study of a composition idea, take it further as a small watercolour painting as a final idea and then develop it more as the finished oil painting. I also use photographs to create a visual reality that can be convincing at times and especially if I want to get the likeness of a person’s face. It has also been good for me in the fact that it has taught me to use observational skills a lot. A lot of what I now paint is something that I have mainly taught myself. I enjoy painting a lot because it gives the imagery more colour and character as well as being hands on.
