Everything you need to know about canvas painting

Do you have a big, blank canvas to start with? Here are some of the corny life clichés that would help you fill-up the canvas.

  • Set Up Your Canvas and Supplies

Set up your complete working area before you start painting on canvas. You should have all your paintbrushes, palette knives, water and any other provisions that you will need at the time of painting on the table. This small step will make your painting time free of stress and fun.

  • Choose Appropriate Brushes

With canvas, you will need to use acrylic or oil paint brushes that have long grips and stiff hairs. These will hold up superior as you are painting than subtle watercolor paintbrushes.

  • Prep Your Canvas

The best way to start with for beginners is to begin with pre stretched canvas on a wooden frame. You would need to prime the surface with the application of gesso. This paint complex covers off the threads of the canvas, which will make your paint go on flatter and last longer, and help defend your brushes.

  • Test Your Colors

Oil paint does not change much when parched, but acrylics will end up to some extent darker than they look while you are painting. Consider this from the start so that the complete piece is not darker than you want it to be. To examine the colors, merely paint samples on scrap paper and let dry in advance stirring onto the canvas.
