You can go through some more acrylic painting techniques and ideas that’ll surely help you to sharpen your painting skills.
Misting of the colors
When you are trying out easy Acrylic Painting Ideas for Beginners, one thing you will have to keep in mind is that acrylic paints dry too quickly. Yes, even before you realize it, your paint will turn into a solid slap of color on the canvas and you won’t be able to work with it. But don’t worry, this is something every acrylic painter experiences, and there is a workable solution to this problem. What solution? Keep misting your paint with water from time to time. Misting has so much power that it can also convert your acrylic paint to watercolor- you gain such a runny consistency
Make use of gesso
Although a lot of painters don’t employ this technique, it can be a savior. All you need to do for this technique is paint your canvas with a gesso mixture before slapping any acrylic color on it. The reason why you should do so is that gesso smoothens the canvas and offers a more resistive surface to work on.
Make blending easy with white
When you are painting with acrylic colors, blending can be really difficult. But to make this easy, you apply a coating of white first and then put a stroke of the color which needs to be blended at the bottom of the white patch. Now, slowly blend the blue into the white. You get an amazing gradient effect.
