    Basics of oil painting

    Hi there!

    Just wondered if anyone knew any good websites that have a good explanation of the basics of oil painting?

    Cant seem to find any sites that are clear and step by step!

    Any help would be massively appreciated!

    I have some step by step art demos on my blog, they don't cover mixing color but they do show the stages from initial drawing to finish. I also have an alla prima thread in the tutorials section both are linked in my signature.
    THe best thing to do is just get some paints and start practicing mixing colors and values.
