Canvas painting is a more advanced form of art. It is used by painters who have learned the art of painting with watercolors or on other textures. Canvas art is usually concerned with paintings made with oil paints. These oils tend to stick to the surface or bond well with it.
Canvases are clothes that were used to make sails for floating vessels. They were common in Venice. This is why Venetian painters chose to paint with canvases over watercolor. They have been popular since the Renaissance era.
Canvas painting has many advantages!
The benefits of switching to canvas painting over watercolor painting are numerous and the difference is amazing. These benefits can be further elaborated by the following:
* The luster of watercolor paintings lost its luster over time, unlike oil or canvas painting. This happened with oil colors on canvas paintings, which added luster to the artwork.
* Watercolor painting also has the problem of the color gradually falling off the paper after a while. This problem did not occur in canvas painting. Canvas is made of thick cloth, and oil paint bonds itself well to the texture.
* Oil paints have a higher density than watercolors and are therefore more appealing than the brighter aspect of the painting.
How to paint canvas!
Before you begin to paint on canvas, it is important that you take care of these things.
* Each person must choose the canvas he will use to paint and the framework he will need. The framework is an important part of canvas painting. It can be either splined or stapled. The former allows the painters to paint on the edges as long as there are no staples.
Due to their high density and low water solubility, they are difficult to manage. Although there are many oil options, the best oil for the job is linseed oil. It has a good blend and enhances the luster.
