Free art instruction: pastels, watercolour, oils, charcoal and acrylic

ArtGraphica has no fixation on the number thirteen, however by sheer coincidence this happens to be the number of new tutorials being launched today. Again in no particular order, we have three fantastic tutorials for the new Pastels art category – Golden Gate Park by Clark Mitchell, and Tiger and Lion Cubs by Eric Wilson. Eric includes some great shots of his work, and has some great stories to tell, including his close call with a black rhino and being handed the keys to boxing legend Mr. Nigel Benn’s porche after painting his portrait.

The Acrylics section has expanded to include four inspiration art lessons. We have Michigan artist Rod Lawrence’s wolf tutorial, Charles Harrington’s step-by-step acrylic instruction, self-taught artist Brian Simons’ waterfall and Lorraine Vatcher’s tulip and glass vase.

Over in the charcoal category, where good lessons are hard to find, Pablo Dominguez produces are stunning and stylised portrait of a puma, with a few touches of highlight in white pastel.

In the oil painting corner there is another contribution by Brian Simons’ on painting pears, and an old vintage snow scene by Aaron Holland.

Last, but not least, there are three additions to the ‘watercolour‘ genre. Doris Joa’s passion for flowers really shows in her rendition of a Heidi Klum Rose. Canadian artist Peter Humeniuk demonstrates the painting of birch trees and Dawn Heim paints some tasty looking wild blackberries.

Thanks for posting – Acrylic is often overlooked in favor of oil on canvas, but I far prefer it’s flexibility, especially in representational art.

It has more than one, that here in Brazil follow the excellent work and lessons.
Currently I have a friend who will go to London and she would like suggestions on shops selling art supplies. If they can pass on will be very grateful.

Service and thank you in advance for lessons.

obs.: I used the google translator and form of notice that the site “Graphic Art” gave error in all of them.

Hi my name ‘s Mike (Michele) and I’m a 1st year italian student at Arts Academy in Macerata. I must say first of all that I found pretty much interesting your oil and acrylic lessons posted here, but what i was actually after was more than that. I was wondering whether it was possible to buy somewhere (here by you or any where you know),some manual or tutorial book about learning hyper/photo realism art from photographs to oil/acrylic on canvas. I found pretty hard actually to contact you either here on your website (I guess your contact page doesn’ t work well, doesn’ it?) or anywhere. Then I realised by occasionally searching on google, that you ‘d been victim of web scamming, so I guess that ‘s why you ‘re now so careful to diffuse your personal data anywhere especially on the internet.
But How can I keep in touch with you then? How will I obtain the information I want?
Meanwhile i thank you all for your attention and looking forward to receiving a response from you as soon as possible.

Thanks a lot again and wish you all the best.
