This Shows the original subject to be painted, CENTRAL PARK in New York City.

My goal is to show you how the creation of an oil painting unfolds into a work of excellence.

I use a photo (8" X 10"), of the subject of interest. When applicable still life props work as well. These methods are always available for you to see every detail and nuance.

First I draw the subject matter on the canvas, using #2 pencils, an art gum eraser, a 12" & 36" ruler, a magnifying glass and an easel.
