I painted with oils for many years, then switched to acrylics. This is acrylic with a gloss varnish that it looks like oils. I used acrylic spray paints on the background and it seems to work well. What do you think?

Hi, not sure if this is the right place to ask this question, but I’m new to oil painting. I was shocked that someone wanted to buy the first painting I did. It is still a little bit tacky to the touch. My question is do I need to seal it? Reading about varnishes it seems like you need to wait a very long time before doing that. 2) the painting has some glossy areas where I used Galkyd, and some flat where the opaque paint is if I don’t seal …

Hi. I am new here. Wanted to get some feedback on my painting here. What would you tell me to do to bring more life into it? Its still a work in progress. I like the drips but not sure if I should keep them or smooth them out? Anything else to make it pop? Thank you!

Help!! I try to mix skin color and I’m having a hard time. The dark hand should be more like a bronze skin color, I used burned umber , allizarin crimson , titanium white and some ultramarine blue, but it’s to dark

Also having a hard time painting tiny hands .

Can anyone help me mix and have some tips?

Thank you

When did you start oil painting? Which are your favorite colors? I started about 2 years ago, infrequently and love ultramarine blue

Hi Everyone,

I’ve signed this artwork so I would say it’s finished however, I would love some feedback moving forward as I intend on creating a body of work of South American inspired pieces. Please let me know what I need to work/develop and what I need to do more of.

Thanks in advance 🙏

I'm looking at upgrading surfaces and I was wondering, what weights of canvas are recommended for different sizes of work? Light 7-8oz is fine for smaller pieces, but at what dimensions would I want to be sure to use a medium or heavy weight canvas material?

Also, does anyone have input on the best store/website to buy pre-stretched canvases? So far it looks like Jerry's is a bit more affordable than Blick's for comparable products but I am open …

Painting that is still tacky after long waiting period. Can I put Liquin on it to speed drying? I painted with Galkyd added to paint.
