Learning time-honored oil-painting lessons is not a matter of reading through some dusty tome or secret scroll. Instead, it is a matter of doing and painting. To that end, we share the concepts we believes are behind every beautiful fine-art oil painting in our newest free eBook, Oil Painting Techniques From Artist Daily: How to Prep Your Oil Art Canvas and Create a Focal Point., which also has a special bonus chapter, Oil Painting Tips from David Leffel, in which the artist discusses the pitfalls of being overly concerned with detail and emotional content, how to hold a brush, the important of massing, and how to start an oil painting.

The best oil-painting instruction lies in responding to the abstract qualities of a fine-art oil-painting composition—light, shadow, values, edges, color, texture, and space. But it also involves simple nuts-and-bolts methods on how to start an oil painting, how to simplify forms, and how to create a strong composition. In Oil Painting Techniques From Artist Daily: How to Prep Your Oil Art Canvas and Create a Focal Point, all these bases are covered! So that you can brush up on the foundational skills every painter should have and learn from Leffel as well, whose process connect him to a long line of artists such as Rembrandt and Van Dyck, all of whom shared a similar preoccupation with the fundamentals of painting.
