miche_nova: (no subject)

Being that i'm new to acrylics, [wet paint for that matter], and still trying to figure things out -[lots of trials & errors].. I attempted to paint a portrait starting with an underpainting, then smearing paint on top of that with my fingers mostly, and brushes..

but I'm now wondering if next time around I could start with a grisaille drawing using watercolor pencils, then on top of that I could paint.. [anyone ever tried painting over a watercolor pencil drawing? is that any good to do?]

emeraldsrain: Glass-like finish

So I am hoping somebody can help me. I am trying to achieve a glass-like finish on my acrylic painting. I've been told you can mix galkyd with some other glaze medium and layer it, but I want to know for sure. So, if any of you know what I'm talking about, how do I achieve this look? Thanks in advance!

miche_nova: w.i.p

It's just recently I've been experimenting with the wet media [acrylic paint etc]., so i'm still figuring stuff out..

I think i'm getting the knack of painting oceanscapes now, i'm definitely improving, and so far this one isn't fighting me that much..

But I do have a question about applying Gesso..
I thought the gesso would go on smoothely if I use a roller brush [with the sponge], but it dries to a rigid surface.. not smoothe at all..

Do I have to sand the surface after the Gesso is dry then?

dalis_clock: Advice needed...

 I am trying painting to add to my..."portfolio". I usually work with charcoal, pencil, or conte, and I seem to be good at that. I am having quite a hard time painting. I am going to post the painting I spent 3 days on. It is supposed to be a sort of surreal tree. Here are my questions: What do you think of it in general? I am using acrylic on canvas..I am having a very hard time working with the paint because it doesn't make a clean line for me. The paint isn't smooth at all and lumps up and dries pretty quickly.  Even my signature looks horrible! What could I do or add to the paint? I realize now after completing this that I should have painted the sky before the tree, because in between the branches looks bad and took forever. I had no patience at all to go back and fix it. Please, any advice at all or comments are hugely appreciated! Thank you!
