Hi everyone,
As the title suggests, what would you like to see from this group?

These were/are my expectations as the group founder:

Several years ago when I was still regularly active on DeviantArt, there was not an oil painting group that I could find, so I made one. Since then, I've tried to set it up so that it can be as self sufficient as possible. Essentially, a place where oil painters could share their work and find other oil painters to talk with or watch.

DeviantArt and the internet have changed. I'm sure there are more oil painting groups by now that are more active.

However, as I type this right now, the OilPainters group had over 2,000 members, and 1,855 watchers. That's great!

I intend to keep the page up and going as long as there are people finding use for it, but as times have changed, I'd like to open up and ask what you all would like to see from this group, if anything?

The page will remain a self sufficient page, meaning I will not be hounding it for accuracy, or whatever else there may be. The internet is not something I have time or desire to control like that.

Also, this group is intended for all artists who practice the medium of oil painting. That should be simple enough, but that does NOT include digital images that are meant to look like oil paintings.

Let me know if you have ideas, thoughts, or general suggestions. This is a group with a great following, and if it can be used to further our creative endeavors, I would like to use it.

:salute: :sun: Clare

This group is for people who are oil Painters, are interested interested in becoming oil painters, or are starting out at being oil painters. Got a room full master pieces? Post them here! Have an old oil painting you did hanging out in your house, post it! Have a sketch of your first scratch at trying to paint a grape? we want that too. Painters of all skills and styles are valued contributors.

We are constantly on the look out for oil painting related tutorials, useful links, articles, and other useful information related to oil painting. So if you know of any please say so and we can add it to the list of resources.

This Group Does Not Accept Digital Art

Stop in and introduce yourself>>>… Tell us about your dog/imaginary dog.

Drop by our temporary group thread>>>…

That said,

Submit as many oil painting as you want. Fav's as well, if you KNOW of an oil paining here on dA suggest it as a fav to the group! :D

that's all for now, and as always, if you have any ideas for the club let it be known! :peace:

I am a new deviant. I am just learning to navigate through the site. I uploaded one oil paint already. Should I submit it again to this group? or Does it automatically show up in the group that I belong to? I really appreciate the advice in this matter
