Painting Technique You Must Try.

  • Watercolor
    Watercolor is a popular painting technique in which a painting is made using watercolor on paper. It may seem like an easy painting technique, but it requires a lot of concentration and a surefire hand, especially since mistakes are difficult to fix. In contrast to gouache, watercolor paint is always transparent. This transparency gives the works of art a soft appearance.

 

  • Collage
    Collage is an art form and technique where paper is cut or torn into pieces and glued to a sturdy piece of paper or cloth. The recycled materials are photos, pages from magazines, newspapers, posters or drawings. Many people add paint to their collages to create more depth. Making collage is an easy technique that is accessible to everyone!

 

  • Airbrush
    Airbrush painting is a unique modern technique, in which you use a sprayer that works on air. You need a small compressor to use the airbrush. The airbrush is a small syringe, but it can still process various types of ink and paint. The small sprayer allows you to paint in great detail. This makes your paintings extra realistic.

 

  • Glaze
    Glazing is a technique in which you apply a transparent layer of paint to an opaque layer of paint that has dried well. This technique allows you to create much more depth on a painting. The colors on your canvas are more alive. This is because the light shines through the glaze and reflects off the underlying colors. It therefore seems as if the color of the painting changes when you look at it from a different point of view.

 

  • Alla fine
    Alla prima is also called Nat in Nat Painting. With this technique you don’t first mix your colors on a palette, but on the canvas. All layers of paint are applied through and over each other, without letting the layers dry. This gives you more natural transitions and you have more possibilities to correct, because you can move the paint very easily.

 

  • Painting matter
    When painting material you work with materials that you glue into your work. Here you mix your paint with clay, sand, foam, cardboard or other materials. The challenge is to melt these materials together into a whole. By using materials, your painting gets more depth and it becomes extra lively!

 

  • Tampon
    Padding is a painting technique in which the paint is applied in a tapping motion with a special brush or sponge. It is a very playful technique, with which you can create a beautiful painting in a short time.
