“An artist does his most difficult work when he steps back from the blank canvas and thinks about what he is going to create.”

– Michelangelo

This fun and informative page is for practicing painters. It consists of postings offering brief references on a wide variety of subjects.

Although posts here are for oil painters, there will be short vignettes of information that apply to artists working in watercolors, pastels, charcoal, and many other media types. These “how-to-do” bits of information are to be used as a quick fix until the painter has more time to conduct “in-depth” research.
