    Some years ago I dabbled with watercolours but never really got ahead with them.. crap if I were honest.. But I feel I can do better with oil, and having seen a few paintings on here would like some basic advice..

    I have also watched quite a few youtube videos and read some forums but would really appreciate any advice, where to start, what equipment etc .. do's and don'ts

    There is a local art club locally which I plan to attend next week..

    please show your paintings and how you achieved the result..

    so very much appreciated...

    I dapple a bit but it’s usually two coats of emulsion on plaster and occasional oil on wood, normally white satin.
    However I have tried oil on canvas but can anyone tell me how to stop the numbers showing through.
