Oil Painting Tutorial – Step by Step – Part 1 with Helen Norton

Narration is the backbone of Helen Norton’s work. Her art thrives on a theme – and her intent is on capturing, communicating and exploring the narrative through bold, imaginative paintings.


She loves the tools of illusion, of being part of the scene and surrounding the viewer with an imagined reality – a ‘what if’ proposal. She uses the past as a mirror on to the present, not simply as a personal interpretation of the past to invite reflection.


She has been exhibiting for thirty years, and is represented in collections nationally and internationally, having had over sixty solo exhibitions and many more group showings in Australia and overseas.


In this, the first of a 3 part series created especially for Colour In Your Life, Helen demonstrates mapping out a landscape painting using oils over an acrylic base.
