How to start a painting
Before you start a painting you need some materials: Paint, Brush and a canvas/paper or somewhere to paint.
I usually use oil colours and canvas/wood. The best oil colours for me are the Georgian from Daler-Rowney.
You can buy a basic set that contains 10 colours in which the basics: blue, yellow and red. In my opinion other two basic colours that a painter must have is black and white. Black for darkening colours and white for warming them up.
Step 2: You start by applying the darker areas on your working piece.
Step 3: Then you apply the darker colours by using the basic colours to create all the colours you require. For example if a part is orange you apply the red and then on top of it the yellow colour.
I will write and upload soon examples of my own work and steps on how you actually paint.
