Not In Your Average Painting DVDs

June 05, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 174

Just bought a new set of painting DVDs? How was it? Was it even worth it?

If asked these set of questions, more often than not, the usual answer would be a "no". Most painting DVDs are just a waste of money and couldn't even begin to give a proper instruction on making a painting properly. Nonetheless, teach you of how to be a good painter in the least.

Now, to be a good painter doesn't necessarily mean you are a good drawer. The best paintings even come in abstract! So, what are these painting DVDs leaving out?

Well, any distinguished painter basically understands that an organized palette can make or break a good painting project. It seems that a well-organized palette will make work very easy to any painter and the task is very much up to the individual involved. Hence, I will be teaching you how to organize your painting palette.

In fact, there are no set rules in organizing a painting palette. Again, it is up to the painter involved, so it being a rather subjective matter, I will only be giving you some guidelines in order to stay as organized as possible.

So, first, let's look into your palette choice. The only way to accomplish an organized palette is to start off with a good palette at hand. Therefore, you must ensure that your palette is made of non-porous material. This will prevent any oil absorption to happen and creep into your palette. Palettes can be made of various materials like plastic, wood, glass or even metal. So, the choice is up to you provided that it doesn't allow any type of paint or oil filter through it.

Next, you must begin with a small section of colors. Putting and mixing too many colors onto your palette may only lead to muddy colors. Start small and just work your way up once you get acquainted with mixing the colors better.

Then, place the colors on your palette in the same position every time you paint. This may prove troublesome at first, but you will soon get the hang of it with constant use. Doing this will increase your painting speed and will give you the momentum you need in painting because it lessens the need for you to slow down and find a particular color.

And of course, always ensure your palette knife clean. There is no use in keeping your palette clean if the palette knife is kept untidy.

Now, this is just a few guides to help you in your way to become a good painter. No amount of watching painting DVDS can make up for the first hand experience itself. So, be sure to keep on moving those brushes.

Oil painting for beginners can be very hard, but there is always help when you know where to find it. So, check out our site and there you may find other oil painting techniques.
