painters and artists: which of these paintings in oil / acrylic is easier to do?
I've never taken an art class before that I knew not paint or i kno nothing about the techniques, etc. I love these paintings (especially texture) I wanted to use as a source of inspiration. i dont kno how to create this texture. I tried painting practice oil painting and is quite flat and one-dimensional (painting itself and texture). So I bought a filling of oil painting and still looks pretty without texture .. im trying to paint something to that effect with acrylic paints and plaster that I bought for heavy work. Which of these paintings is easier to achieve? tips are welcome. 20Autumn% http://www.artbymimi.com/images/abstracts/Abstract 20Trees_right_lg.jpg%
The primers and the third looks as if they were painted with a knife and maybe the line of work has been done with a brush. Oil paintings directly tube with a knife would be best to achieve this texture. Acrylics are buttery texture, but not stiff enough. However, for me, the second table looks as if the medium is applied with a stiff bristle brush. It is difficult to know how a painting was done from a photograph. It is best to look at reality to treat find out how it was done. Gypsum is used to prepare the surface to be painted. If the plaster is applied too thick, it could crack. To create texture in his paintings, I would not recommend the use of plaster, the use of paint in place. You do not have to create the texture of the painting itself, but if you get technical, is Can you paint over a very smooth and soft, and create the illusion of texture, depth (dimension-as you call it) mixed. You just have to practice - Practice - practice. When it comes to being a good painter, learning by doing.
