See me paint on YouTube, search for 'kevin hill oil painting'
My name is Kevin Hill, I'm currently 18 years old and started oil painting when I was 15. I started by watching painting shows on PBS Sunday mornings. I enjoy the wet on wet technique because it allowed me to have a finished painting in a day rather than 2 weeks.
There are definitely steps you need to follow to make it work, but once you have a grasp of those techniques, it will blow your mind how nice your paintings will look in such a short time.
It's a great way for someone new to oil painting to have success quickly.
