If oil painting has been something that you have wanted to take up, but might not have had the nerve to do as of yet, let us help you then. We have a few tips for those who are considering oil painting. Let’s look at a few of those for those of you out there who would like to pursue this wonderful form of art.
The first thing that you will want to do is make sure you organize your paints on the palette. This might seem rather odd, but you might learn to love this little piece of advice. If you stick to one way of putting these on your palette then you can easily learn which colours are way and get the colours you want. Once you do this for a while, it will just be a thing of instinct.
The next thing is all about how much paint you use. Oil paints are expensive. Therefore, these tips are all about helping you so that you can use as much of the paints as you want while making them last longer. Therefore, this tip will tell you that with each layer, your medium then should be increased just a little bit
Another thing you need to keep in mind is how fast or slow the paints dry. If you can use paints that dry a lot quicker, you will find that you are better off. This is also true for the under coat.That is why you never want to use the color Ivory Black for your sketches or for the underpainting. This will take too much time to dry.
The last tip we can give you is about how you let your paints dry. Just as there are rules to developing your pictures for those of you who have ever practiced photography, the dark is not the place for oil painting. It has been found that when you let your Oil painting dry in the dark, a film forms. This gives it a rather odd look that you are not going for.
While some of these you might have to learn on your own and you might not be too sure about what we mean by them, the more you read up about painting with oil paint, the more you will learn. This can help you in the long run. This can give you a few starting points and these are normally things they don’t even teach you.
