Via Artists Network, I found this post on Nine Painting Tips for Beginners written by: Well, I'm a big believer in the idea that there's always something new to learn even from beginner articles. Here are just a few of the tips that I look forward to experimenting with:
- "If you wish to correct a watercolor mistake, the easiest way is to use a Spray Bottle. The stream of water works like a pressure washer." Check the complete post for the detailed how to.
- "Using Pan Pastels, you can paint over an overworked area, and even shift the color......the addition isn’t even noticeable because the dust particles are very small."
- "To Make Very Thin Lines, use paper business cards: rip them in different sizes, dip the straight sides of the cardboard into your paint and stamp the lines in. This is very handy for cracks in wooden walls or rocks, thin branches on winter trees, and barbed wire."
Check out the complete article for more great ideas.
Also, don't forget to enter the Sixth Annual Artist's Network Holiday Sweepstakes. The contest begins on Black Friday and ends on December 20. The prizes are always spectacular. I have no connection with Artist's Network. I'm just spreading the good news.
