New to this forum

Hi fellow oil painters! I'm new to this forum but not to oil painting. I've been painting for over 25 years, and I teach a class in oil painting at a local recreation center.

As soon as I am allowed, I will be most happy to post some of my work. I enjoy discussing paints, brushes, and mediums. I paint in a traditional manner, and I mainly use traditional materials.

I taught part-time evening classes at Arizona State University for 4 years, and my subject was color theory and application. Once I learned the true primary colors of pigment, such knowledge rather stuck with me, and I've put that knowledge to good use in my work.

I believe that I have many "tricks-'o-the trade", and I keep no "secrets". I share whatever knowledge I may have with anyone who wishes to obtain it.

Pleased to meet you all.

Welcome to the Artistforum Bill. I'm Terry and have been painting for only a year and a half and only started with oil paints last January. I have so much to learn so I am personally thrilled you joined the forum.

I keep my photos of my paintings on my computer also. Just use the paper clip icon to attach a picture to your post. Or you can use the 'manage attachment' link below. Well the link is below when you are putting up your post.

I think you will like it here, nothing but good folks.

I just love the brightness and the deep shadows. I'm often afraid of over doing the dark side, but wow it sure does make this picture. Absolutely love it.
