Ensure it Matches with Walls

It is advisable that you select a painting which presents some contrast to the colors of your wall.

Ten Super Watercolor Painting Tips for Illustrators

“We would like to see examples of your color work,” said the hand-written message on the postcard from an art director at a children’s book publishing house.

Uh-Oh. She had liked the black and white art samples I’d sent her, but she zeroed in on my weakness: The painting instruction I’d never quite gotten in college.

Now I had to work up some full color illustrations that demonstrated my painting bravura, or lack thereof. It was a long time ago and I’ll spare you the details about how I spent the weekend whipping up watercolors, doing the best I could with the little I knew. I could draw figures and scenes decently. But in my color and washes, there was always as many misses as hits. My painting efforts were all guesswork. Did it show?

I guess it did, because I didn’t hear from her again after I submitted my hastily assembled watercolors, or rather, photocopies of them.

I’ve learned a lot since then from painters, art directors and fellow illustrators, who were also, thank goodness, teachers at heart and generous.

The result is that I’ve learned that what I’d thought of as the scary part of illustration was not so scary or all that

Landscape Painting Tips For Beginners

There is something quite magical about painting outdoors. I feel comfortably secluded with nature having an almost spiritual connection when I paint a landscape. Landscape painting is a passion of mine. I would like to share some tips and techniques that I have become accustomed to using over the years.

My first bit of advice – try not to get overwhelmed by the scene in front of you. I recall when I first began painting landscapes I tried to copy everything exactly as I saw it. I tried to squeeze in every detail, paint every leaf, branch, and blade of grass. You will go crazy approaching a landscape this way. Try and paint your own impression of what you see and not a copy of it. Squint your eyes and see the landscape as a series of shapes, lights and darks, as opposed to seeing every detail. You can accomplish some amazing things that you never thought were inside, if you just relax, and let the painter inside come to the surface.

Painting on location is certainly a beautiful experience, but remember that you have to paint quite fast as the lighting will change quickly. I usually begin my paintings using a

Human hair brushes are much more expensive than most of the other brushes you can buy. Human hair brushes are suitable for delicate work where you need your brush strokes to completely blend into the paint and not be visible.

Artificial bristled brushes are the cheaper brushes and they tend to lose some of their bristles while you are painting. Nothing

Black and White Photography Tips

How to Sell Fine Art Photography

The photographs that are created by an artist to impress upon the creative vision are called Fine Art Photographs. Pictures created to display for sale are known as Fine Art Photographs, whereas a photograph taken on a commercial intention and to earn a commission is called Art Photography. Fine art photography is very different from commercial photography and photojournalism.

Gradually, many photographers have started viewing fine art photography with a modern outlook. Light and stage are important to present day photography. Earlier, photographers used natural sources and ready to use stages, such as waterfalls, hills and other natural scenic beauties.

Framing and printing a photograph is another important factor in this kind of photography because it helps in improving the appearance of the photographs and thus betters the chance of selling. Highly glossy wall sized prints are used rather than small prints and glass is commonly used to portray the photographs instead of canvas.

Selling of fine art photography is not an easy task. The basic problem faced during selling this type of photography is fixing the price of the photographs. Economics plays an important role during the fixation of the price of a photograph. There are some other points which should be
