VIDEO #3 - Lilac Love by Marion Dutton

In this lesson professional art tutor Marion Dutton takes us through a romantic beach scene in oils.  This is a great lesson for beginners because it uses the wet-in-wet oils technique (no waiting days for various layers to dry) and it's a real favourite with students in her private art classes.

If you're new to oils or if it's a medium that you've shied away from because of the perceived mess and drying times, do give this painting a go.  

Title: Lilac Love
Medium: Oils
Artist: Marion Dutton
