Oil Painting Tutorial by Artist Jade Butler

We're delighted to share an oil painting tutorial by artist Jade Butler. Jade takes the viewer through a step by step oil painting demonstration of a butterfly.

In this tutorial Jade starts off by adding base colours to her butterfly drawing, followed by lights and darks on top, as well as shadows, forms and blending. Jade also discusses adding texture with the use of different brushes, layering of paint and colour choices.
