Acrylic Paints have a face of their own

By: Peter | On: 23 October, 2014

Acrylic Paints have a face of their own, but through careful orchestration they can be made to look like something entirely different.

ART DISCUSSIONS


What do you use to make your painting shinny/glossy?

Hi Ashley, in order to protect the paint surface and make your painting shiny and glossy, after your painting is dry, apply two coats of high gloss clear acrylic varnish.

PAINTING TIP OF THE DAY

Composition in abstract painting can be tricky if the shape is in the wrong place. There is no content to distract the viewer. However, often representational painters will cause an unimportant object in, say, a still life to assume too much importance by placing it in an awkward position, using a jarring color,m or giving it too much pattern or texture. This will distract the viewer from the intended focal point. Imagine a serene still life of roses with a carefully rendered can opener in one corner of the painting. Make sure your "can opener" is your intention.
