‘Paint With the Goal of Perfection’
Life of portrait artists is a heaven. They play with thoughts, refine them, add beauty of colors and talk to people’s feelings with their strokes. Turn the table around and it could be a different story. This happens when an artist himself ruins his work. Well, this is more linked to the newbies.
An expert artist knows ‘what to do and what not’ but novice needs to learn this fact. It is all fine to make mistakes, this means you are trying for the set goal. But, you must take your mistakes as ‘learning lessons’ because this will help to comprehend what will make your painting an affluent or a ruined castle.
Not huge, often the smallest slip-ups annihilate all your efforts. In my opinion, after abstract work, surreal art needs the greatest amount of struggle. Stay away from the technical hitches below and embellish your paintings with grandeur.
- Bombardment of Colors:
True that paintings are the colorful impressions. So, you also got the spectrum, good but do understand when not to go after ‘the more, the merrier’. Sometimes things demand us to get low and quiet, same holds for the color combination and contrast in art works.
People usually don’t appreciate color congestion. You can create wonders with less ingredients blended decently. Try to use limited palette to give a unified and pleasing expression of your work.
- Dull and Static Composition:
This occurs when you center stage your subject in the painting. Very common is the term ‘bulls eyes’ but that’s what perfectly fits herein. Placing your target point right in the center of the frame means you are taking away the viewer’s leverage of eye movement around or within the image. Isn’t it a flimsy mark on your skills?
Don’t bring boredom for your viewers and work on dynamic composition by focusing on your subject off-center. Get rid of bull’s eye syndrome and your paintings will look a lot better with effective composition than the average.
- So Gentle, So Furious-Tonal Difference
A balanced painting is the one with well-adjusted tonal difference. Using a vast range of colors slashing or dabbing here and there is the job of kids not of the portrait artists. Take your painting as you have to make a butter cake and not a fruit cake or a simple sponge cake.
Too gentle or too furious a tone will quickly convey to the viewers that something isn’t quite right. Here you need to check the tonal difference between all the areas of colors in your painting. Don’t let the seductive colors pull you in as you paint. It will not allow the viewers to take pleasure in your artwork. A well-crafted tonal difference is the recipe for success.
Don’t Know When to Stop:
A good digital surrealism artists cannot be mindless and he must know when to stop patenting. Taking the initiative is far easier than understanding when to give it a pause. Overworking is normally the outcome of fear that you will ruin your painting if you ought to leave it unfinished.
So, many people think that once started it’s the best to take off the painting from easel when completed. Let me tell you that this will destroy your painting more than you ever imagined or terrified of.
As soon as you get tired or find yourself in satisfaction with your painting, that’s the moment to stop completely. You can do the touch ups later if it really needs.
