Paint can be challenging, but people use it to express emotions. It can range from the pure pleasure of happiness, to the unnerving anger. Everybody has experienced painting. In elementary school you might have learned to paint from your favorite teacher. Middle school may be the annoying teacher of middle age. And even in high school it could have come from a teacher who had an impact on future career decisions. In the event that this did not happen during your formative years, it is possible to take a course through the local community. The chances are that you’ve taken a course on painting at The Tingology Class in your life.
You can use acrylics, watercolours or even oil paints as a starter. Since you are probably reading this, it’s safe to assume that you don’t know what you are doing. After you gain more experience with oils, you can experiment. Water is a great way to enhance the use of watercolors. Water color papers can be purchased at any local craft shop, such as Joanne’s and Michael’s. Acrylics paints do not require dilution and will last several weeks.
Second, get a canvas panel. It is recommended that you use this first if you are a beginner before you move on to the stretched canvas. You will then need to select which brush you’re going to be using. Although brushes may not appear to be important, they literally can make or ruin a painting. Please ask the local art retailer for further information. Material and size are also very important. It is not a good idea to get an inferior brush because it will leave bristles behind on your work. You should also wash your brushes following use.
