Oil painting is not too difficult and complicated, especially when you have an idea or a subject for your paintings. However, with beginners, it’s not easy to immediately get a beautiful oil painting as what you imagine.
Today, in this article, I will introduce to you the work of an very well known Belgian artist, Christiane Vleugels. She is a combination of talent and non-stop working for years. Christiane started painting when she was 12 years old with a talent that can not be denied. She then studied in academy of Fine Arts and learned drawing and sculpting at SISA and the Royal Academy of Antwerp.
Below are some of her oil painting works. Many of them made me thought it was a photo taken from a modern digital camera with vivid and realistic colors.
Maybe you do not know, oil painting requires painting tools different from other painting genres. Oil paints and paintbrushes with diffrent sizes are two most important things. You will also need knives, palette for mixing colors, a drawing table and some old rags and bottles to clean, and kept your drawing instruments.
