Creating nature in Oil paintings

Oil painting is the process of painting with pigments that are clear with a medium of drying oil — particularly in early modern Europe, linseed oil. Often oil such as linseed was boiled with a resin such as pine resin or still frankincense; these were called 'varnishes' and were award-winning for their body and gloss. Other oils occasionally used include poppy seed oil, walnut oil, and safflower oil. These oils confer various properties to the oil paint, such as less yellowing or different aeration times. Certain differences are also visible in the sheen of the paints depending on the oil. Painters often use different oils in the same painting depending on specific pigments and effects beloved. The paints themselves as well develop a particular feel depending on the medium.

Anyone Can Try A Simple Thread Painting

So let’s see, what is thread painting all about? Thread painting, or free-motion machine embroidery, is a unique way of embellishing your quilts by “painting” the images on your quilt top, clothing or anywhere your imagination takes you.

Thread painting might look complicated, but it is actually very simple. No advanced skills are necessary and the best part is that no special machine is required. I call it my anyone-can-do-it approach.

There are two methods to thread paint my designs. The first is the tulle sandwich method which consists of two layers of tulle sandwiched between two layers of water soluble stabilizer film. The second is the direct method which consists of,
  1. Bottom layer - two layers of stabilizer backing.
  2. Middle layer -the fabric or quilt top. and
  3. Top layer - a layer of water soluble stabilizer film on the top. In both methods, the design is traced on the top layer of water soluble stabilizer film and acts as a guide to thread paint the design.

Displaying a Good Set of Values Using Oil Painting?

Establishing a good variety of values within an oil painting is just as important. However, the added element of hue and the possibilities within it, make it harder for the novice painter to discern different values among changing colors. This is because certain colors have intrinsic values different than others.

Mounting a good set of values that spans from dark to light is one of the key elements of art. When working in pencil or charcoal, it is easier to recognize the scale of values because of the monochromatic qualities of drawing.

If you would like to process your understanding of values through painting, all you need to do is simplify. In as much as it is easier to discern different values in pencil because of the elimination of color, it too is easier to learn the same while oil painting just by simplifying the palette to a monochromatic one.

Hand Painting still in life

The real reason to opt for oil painting lies in its ease and quickness of its application. You can use the oil painting even if you want to make some random sketches for developing them in final painting after wards. Apart from the luxury of having comfort in using the watercolors, these colors allow freedom to apply the transparent effects that is crucial in making a painting artistically valuable.

When an artist looks upon a scene, immediately a special kind of visual experience is generated in her or his mental sphere. If this experience is caught in colors within a short period of time, it can be recorded with more authenticity and liveliness. Here the artist needs a medium that can be applied with delicacy; watercolors provides the artists with such an opportunity where she or he can use brushes loaded wet colors and loaded with elegance. Such a facility, such a luxury is hardly available while using oil colors as the oil colors take its own time to dry.

Oil Painting during Times of Disaster

A familiar Spanish painter of the time, Picasso was asked to produce a piece of art to decorate the Spanish Pavilion in the Paris World Fair in 1937. Responding to the attack by means of his painting, he created a large mural depicting the horror of the bombing of Guernica that he titled Guernica.

The painting has become a fascination not only for the sensation it portrays, but also for the symbolism and hidden meanings throughout the massive mural and focusing on the secret images within the mural and how they allow the painting to delve even further into the horrors of war.

From the paintings influences creeping through all kinds of art created during airplane crash. This shows how it badly gets affected and people might be troubled. Otto Dix was an expressionist from Germany whose paintings spoke loudly of the terror of war and the living conditions of the time.

Abstraction through Nature Sources in Oil Painting

Nature has always been one of the favored sources of inspiration for oil painters since oil colors were invented. Objects in nature have born in them an aesthetic beauty from afar, but even more so from a very close up point of view. An organic object, no matter what size, can provide the ultimate inspiration for an oil painting even when just the tiniest portion of it is the focus.

We are exceedingly fortunate to be surrounded by such an inspiring force as nature. The resources for a great abstract painting are all around us. Even if a natural object is chosen completely arbitrarily, or a combination thereof will always prove to open the creative oil painter toward astonishing abstract imagery. So, grab a mushroom, a rock, a pinecone, or even your dog! The potential lying within nature is limitless.

Guidelines to empower your oil paintings

If you have a time getting the paint off of your hands, baby oil or olive oil works really well. Wear rubber gloves, then you need not worry about the paint getting on your hands.

A great thing to begin with is to use primary colors to create various shades of gray from white to black, and paint in black and white.This gives you a chance to know the value and contrast.

The thinner/oil mix up seems to last longer than just the thinner between cleaning, and when it gets really cloudy, it doesn't split.

Try to make a painting using only your palette knife to paint with it and the results are so interesting. When painting outside, make sure that your canvas and your palette are not in direct sunlight. It is better to shade your canvas and palette because if you paint with the canvas in direct sunlight, it will cause you to mix your colors wrongly.

A limited palette is suggested when painting outside as well. You can mix the colors you need and need not drag all of your paints out into the field.

Oil Painting - How to Shun Your Mistakes Easily

Oil painting is the most admired style among all the painting styles. But there are certain things that will ruin your art work, if you are not aware of those things. You will be happy knowing that most of the mistakes can be repaired easily if you follow some basic rules.

Cracking is one of the defects you commonly find in oil paintings. This defect occurs because the bottom layer of the painting contains more drying oil as compared to the top layer. In case the top layer contains too many solvents then it will dry very fast and become more brittle than bottom layer. To avoid this defect make sure you apply the paint properly on all the layers and give proper time to them to dry.

The main cause of a dull finish in the painting is the improper ratio of drying oils in paint and solvents. Generally, it happens when the amount of solvent is more in the painting. Make sure to use prime oil paint for avoiding this kind of sinking effect in your art work.

How to Paint Rivers and Achieve Realistic Reflections

River scenes are always popular with the universal painting. The movement of water quietly flowing along to its destination carries the imaginative mind in the same direction.

Before starting to paint water reflections, the whole of the river should be painted in a tone considerably darker than the sky. This will help them to judge the correct tonal relations of various reflections.

Calm diagnosis is necessary when making a realistic painting of water which has become frantic and disturbed by a powerful wind.

With oil painting, the problem can be solved in the initial stage by ignoring the restless movement of water and painting the reflections as they would appear if seen on a calm day. Then, with a brush fully charged with oil colour, paint the movement of the water, leaving certain passages untouched.

‘Acrylic Paints - preeminent in the Painting Industry’

The main characteristic of acrylic paint is, it dries very fast. It contains many types of pigments dissolved in an acrylic polymer mixture. Once they get dried-up they become water resistant, otherwise they can easily mix up with water.

In many ways they are very related to other oil paints, but they are very simple to use and much cheaper compared to oil paints. If you just start your painting career, it is very suitable to use them. It doesn't require skills that are required to use watercolor or the patience needed for oil paints.

Artist must be very quick with his or her design and ideas while using them. However, in present time additives are used in them to slow down its drying process.

If any artist wants to use this type of paint for external use, he has to buy a special paint made for exterior use only.

Canvas – The Best Medium for Oil Painting.

Today, canvas is the most common medium for oil paintings. paintings were done on more solid mediums, such as wood. However, during the time of the Italian Renaissance, the merchant shipping industry was booming, and with that boom came many innovations and technologies borrowed from more eastern cultures. Among these technologies was the use of the canvas sail.

Canvas painting quickly took popularity over the more traditional and unwieldy wood planks. Because of its durability, canvas was able to withstand both the paint itself and the test of time. canvas is more portable, less expensive, and easier to create the correct size. No longer was an artist inhibited by the size of the wood plank he could find, and much larger paintings resulted from this freedom.
