My new painting "Tennis player Sharapova".
Material: acrylic, canvas.
This is the third picture that went to Texas. I am thinking of collecting all 3 pictures in one post, but this is next time. I don’t want to make the post too big, so that you don’t get bored.
I paint pictures with acrylic paint. This is my favorite material. Of course, I have not tried to paint with oil paint, but maybe in the future. I am using a canvas from katon. Cato fabric, ground and stretched over a wooden stretcher. But I also want to try painting on linen canvas. It is more expensive. But I think it's worth a try.
Being creative is not a cheap hobby, not a cheap occupation. Therefore, I do not understand people who are trying to devalue creativity. Since the end of centuries, not everyone could afford to buy a painting that the artist painted.
Brushes only synthetics (I am against killing animals for the sake of art), paint only professional line (I am for quality).
In my work, I use several brushes (it all depends on what size the canvas is, for example, for a painting of 50x60 sizes I use brushes: large number 12, medium brush number 5, and the smallest for small details (this is number 0 or number 1), also I use a fan brush and a large flat brush to paint the painting with varnish.
As for paint, I use several paint colors (most often I mix on a palette using a palette knife with different shades of paint to get the desired color that is not in my palette).
I always start with a pencil sketch. Then I start working with paints.
The picture is ready
