Question for the painters
When you're painting with a background, how do you avoid painting over the line and onto the horse? I always end up with a fuzzy horse mixed into the background :?
Also do you do the background first or last?
What medium are you using to paint with?
I paint with acrylics, so if I'm painting something with a background, I'll paint it first, let it dry completely then paint over it.
When I painted in oils, I did the Bob Ross wet-on-wet style, so I would just paint right on top of the background.
As for the line, you could try painting the line with a flat brush or liner brush, then filling in the space with a different brush.
I use acrylics. Well, I try to use acrylics! I'm still teaching myself lol
With acryclis it is best to do the background first. When you are paitning the background put some marsking tape over the horse so that when you paint on it all your doing is painting on the tape. Then when it comes to painting the horse all you have to do is carefully take the tape off :D
I use marsking tape on paper and it works fine, just have to be carefull :)
Great, thank you!! :)
For a super cheap alternative, do your practice work on wax paper.
Yes, regular wax paper in the tinfoil section. It's nicer for acrylics than watercolor paper. Watercolor paper always just sucked my brush dry.
Wax paper, really? Wow, never would have thought of that! Will definitely give it a go :)
