Many artists who have just started with acrylic painting certainly make many mistakes, which they should avoid in order to create their masterpiece. However, mistakes are part of learning process. In this article, I will introduce to you some common mistakes to avoid, which mostly beginner acrylic painters will make as they start.
Not Using Variety in Painting
Mostly beginner acrylic painters avoid using enough variety of painting. Variety of ideas will help you to create interest and curiosity in your painting and the viewer will surely return to observe it. So, how you can create interest in your painting? Well, you can use a variety of different techniques and brushstrokes to add value and variety in your painting effectively. You can change the direction of your brushstrokes or you can mix various techniques in the same painting to add more interest and creativity in it.
Being Too Technical
You should avoid being too technical in order to succeed in interesting your audience. In order to paint a subject truly and truly does not mean that you have to copy the subject exactly as it is. I mean you will have to connect with the painter inside you and paint your own impression of the subject that reflects your perception. In this manner, you will be able to show your inner creativity and make it shine on the canvas distinctly. This is what most professional painters and artists like Claude Monet and Vincent van Gogh do. They create their own styles and thoughts on their canvas of the subject and make it look more visible for the art lovers.
Not Observing Subjects
Mostly beginner acrylic painters do not observe their subjects properly. It is important for you to spend time while observing your subjects that you feel inspired from. If you are a landscape artist and want to paint landscapes, you will have to spend most of the time outdoor in that environment. In case, if you are not spending enough time in observing the subjects you wish to paint, you will not have the proper knowledge about them and will not be able to paint they well.
