Hi, Everyone! Thank you for visiting DGOilPaintingTechniques.Com.
I have been a professional oil painter since 1997; full time since December of 2002. I have a BFA from Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA, but in many ways I consider myself primarily self taught. I have had a lot of informal instruction; e.g. reading lots of books and magazines on the subject (and actually doing what they teach), and have taken a few workshops from noted artists. I consider myself an eternal student of the medium and the process.
I have been through a lot, spent tons of money on supplies, spent countless sleepless nights mulling over techniques and tools. In short, I have trudged along on this journey of oil painting for several years now and would like to share my knowledge (limited though it be) through this site. I hope you find the information on this blog informative. As I like to say, “I’m STILL learning”. In fact, I look forward to my next workshop (as soon as I can find the time and the cash).
If there is anything you would like me to cover please let me know via a comment on a post, or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will try to cover it in a future installment.
If you would like to see a fairly complete list of my officially recognized accomplishments, please visit the bio page of my website here.
Happy Art Making!
