Acrylic painting

002

Remember when working on acrylic paintings the paint dries quickly; use a paint extender to help with slowing the drying time. In comparison acrylic paint dries faster than craft paints. Here the painting still needs fine details, which I will show her how too on Saturday.

Do not forget that acrylic paints can have semi transparent layers so the building process will only add a realistic form to the subject. Just because the paint is somewhat opaque doesn’t mean you can not control the thickness you paint with. Look closely at the object you are painting and look for the under tones using them to help create and reinforce form and shape. depending on how much focus you want on the foreground subject determines how much detail goes into the background. 009
