Today we want to share with you a special post:

We don't believe there is a one-size-fits-all learning path everyone should take to master painting. Everyone has different tendencies, interests, and natural abilities that determine the optimal learning path to follow.

In this video tutorial, you will see a path that can help you in oil painting. This painting method will allow you to paint ANYTHING you want in just 4 steps.

There is a certain old-school cachet associated with oil painting, largely because the medium was used and popularized by many European Renaissance masters.

But that doesn't mean that oil paints can't be used for cool contemporary art, or that artists should be intimidated by them. In fact, they are one of the most popular types of paint because they are so rich and versatile.

Oil paints are made from pigment powder and oil, usually linseed oil. They take longer to dry than most other paints and require extra care when using and cleaning.

When you start painting in oils, start with a few basic colors. This will allow you to experiment more with mixing colors, giving you a good idea of the qualities of oil paints.

Start with the primary colors plus black and white, adding more once you've mastered the basics of oil painting. Starter kits offer a good variety for beginning oil painters.

Most quality brushes will state if they are suitable for oil painting. Just like with paints, you can get a starter kit or choose individual brushes.

Assemble a mix of round, square and fan shapes of varying sizes. As with paintings, it's a good idea to start with a smaller collection and then add to it once you've had a chance to experiment.

The best surface for oil painting is a stretched canvas or canvas board. Whatever surface you choose, you will need to prep it with plaster.

Some people feel that oil painting cannot be done at home. It's not true, but you have to be careful. Oil paints themselves can have a strong smell, and the solvents needed to thin the paint and clean the brushes are toxic.

Find a place outside or in a well-ventilated room. The use of latex or nitrile gloves is also recommended when handling paints, as some contain dangerous chemicals that can be absorbed through the skin.

When learning to paint in oils on canvas, there is one important step that you should not miss. Oil paint is thick and the oils will seep into the canvas or other surfaces if you don't apply the plaster first.

This not only affects the appearance of your finished artwork but can also cause the canvas to degrade over time. Gesso also helps paint reach the surface more easily.

Some canvases and boards come pre-primed with plaster, but otherwise, you'll have to do it yourself. Gesso is a mixture of chalk, plaster and pigment, and comes in varieties of acrylic glue or rabbit fur.

Gesso takes about an hour to dry and usually requires two coats.
