OIL PAINTING DEMONSTRATIONS

Welcome - wildlife paintings in progress by Martin Ridley.
(updated: 29Th JANUARY 2014)

Follow an oil painting demonstration, see how a piece of artwork evolves from the initial compositional drawings through to completion and preview my very latest wildlife paintings. This page is one of the prime objectives of this website and I try my very best top keep it up to date. Current drawings and paintings are displayed using digital camera shots. Please revisit every few weeks, I'm sure there will be some fresh images for you.
