Hiya! I am Andrew Whyte and welcome to my free 'Oil Painting for
Beginners' Tutorial. I was very fortunate to be born in New Zealand
during the 60's and began painting from an early age. Since 1993
I have been producing landscape paintings of New Zealand for sale
with a modest level of success. By success I mean I have made a
few welcome dollars along the way, which has enabled me to follow
my passion and develop my painting style. A style I would like to
share with you! Above all; success is enjoying my painting and sharing
Some people think that painting in oils is a messy
business with smelly fumes and hard to clean up. Well YES! that
can be right but how often do you say that about a nice roast dinner?
Oil paints are not as convenient as acrylics but the flexibility
and texture is well worth it. If you are like me and take ages producing
a painting then you will love the way oil paint stays wet for a
long time and you can save the paint in the freezer for future use,
so wastage is minimal.
Oil paint is proven to stand the test of time and an oil painting
carries a prestige value.
