I can’t really speak to the best paint methods, but the basics are fairly simple. The most effective way to learn is through a class, such as our Beginners’ Painting class. If you’re not able to attend a class that you find suitable, you can take some general classes online.
How good are beginners’ paintings?
Beginners’ paintings are generally very similar to pro-level artists’ paintings, with a few differences. First off, beginners tend to paint in very thin layers, as opposed to top-coat. This can make them a bit too thin, and also create a rougher edge. I prefer to paint on thin paint layers. Second, beginners’ paintings tend to have a more muted tone, due to the lack of top coat. Lastly, beginners’ paintings tend to be much, much smaller in size than professionals’ paintings. This makes up for the lack of layers.
How long can beginners’ paintings last?
Beginners’ paints are usually a little bit thinner than professional artists’ paints, so it usually takes a while before they dry. If you try to get a professional to work on your painting, you’ll usually see a major issue with their technique, and you’ll probably need to wait a long time for your canvas to dry, so you can start painting again. My advice is to try to get a professional to work on you sooner rather than later.
Will beginners’ paint last through the winter?
No. If you’re painting in late winter or early spring, the longer you painted in such a cold weather, the thinner your paint will be, and you need to paint to the finish in order for it to last through the winter.
Is beginners’ paint easier to get into than pros’ paintings?
Yes! To get better at beginners’ painting, don’t use a brush-on paint before learning to paint from a brush. The paint will go in easily, and then you won’t have to worry so much as to “get off” the pencil on the side of your palette.
What kind of brushes do beginners’ artists use?
Start with a small-to-medium size acrylic brush and learn how to apply the paint to the canvas. Next, you’ll want to work on mixing together water, oils, and drybrushing with the paint. Once you can reliably “brush” a piece with paint, you should start getting very proficient at “smudging” layers.
