Oil painting techniques can feel shattering when you’re first learning to paint. Although there’s a learning curve with all different types of paint, oils can be particularly unforgiving. In this, article we’re going to look specifically at oil painting techniques. These tips will change your process and breathe a new life into your oil paintings.
Here are the 10 OIL PAINTING TECHNIQUES TO IMPROVE..!!
01. HOLD THE PAINTBRUSH CORRECTLY.
There are many different clutches on the paintbrush that an artist can use while painting. Every artist should know; to get the most sensitivity and fluidity with your strokes, hold the brush handle as far back you can. This might feel uncomfortable for you at first, but it provides the greatest degree of control because it allows you to paint with your arm completely rather than doing it just by your wrist. After, using the brushes clean them properly.
02. MASTER YOUR BRUSH ORIENTATION.
During the process of painting, it can be very easy to forget that your brush has two sides. It’s not necessary that you can make wides strokes flat side of your brush, as every brush can be turned on its side for sharper strokes or lines. Start learning to control your lines with your brush orientation will help you paint faster and with more versatility.
03. MODIFY YOUR PRESSURE.
Avoid having ‘heavy hands’ while holding your paintbrush. Sometimes the pressure that you apply with a stroke can make the difference between mess and perfection. The heavier pressure, the more your paints will blend and create folds along the sides of your brushstrokes. Be familiar with how your light, medium, and heavy strokes look on the canvas and modify your pressure appropriately to achieve your desires results.
04. TACKLE THE POWER OF THE PAINTING MEDIUM.
Oil painting is not only about the paint. An absolutely essential part of controlling paint is the artist’s use of a painting medium -typically a mixture of solvent and oil used to modify and make it behave in different ways. By adding lots of medium will make your paint flat and transparent like a wash, whereas by adding just a little medium will give your paint a dip -like consistency.
05. KEEP YOUR COLOURS PURE.
Be careful when you grab paint quantity from your palette. Make that your brushes are clean or you will touch the colours you want to use. It’s important to preserve the potency of the colours straight out of the tube so, remember to clean your brushes regularly and frequently – even between strokes if needed.
06. USE MIXTURE OF TWO-COLORS IF POSSIBLE.
Grabbing from every single quantity while mixing will create a less intense and dull mixture. Practise mixing what you need using only two colours and white. By increasing your colour knowledge and getting better at mixing, you will paint much more quickly and efficiently and your work will get benefit from it.
07. Don’t over mix.
When mixed colours first lump into one another, there are tiny inconsistencies in the mixture that help add clearness and interest to your paint. So, when you combine colours to create a mixture it’s important to make sure that you only mix them as much as necessary before applying the stroke. If you over-mix two colours, you will turn your interesting mixture into a flat and dull quantity of paint.
08. Don’t dash off on paint.
Sometimes you want a thin wash, but other times you need a thick stroke in order to achieve your desired results, so make sure that you’re using enough paint to create the type of stroke you need. Don’t hold back on the paint at the cost of your painting. If you find yourself constantly swirling a brush around a thin pool of paint on your palette, then it’s probably time to remake that mixture.
09. TRY WET – ON – WET VERSUS DRY BRUSH.
Keep in mind that, you can paint directly onto a wet surface or wait for it to dry and put wet paint over that. Paints will blend on the canvas when working wet-in-wet, which is great for getting switch or accents. Painting with a dry brush will give you a more textural effect, which is perfect for painting chunk or dirt.
10. DON’T FORGET THE PALETTE KNIFE.
The palette knife is not just a blade that you use to mix paint! It can also be used quite effectively at times to make interesting strokes. A palette knife is particularly useful for making textural and unreliable strokes – effects that you’d be hard-pressed to duplicate with a brush.
