By making my own canvas and carefully selecting materials and products for my paintings, I can significantly impact the final result of my artwork.
Here's an explanation of their importance:
Making my own canvas provides me with greater control over the quality, texture, and size of the surface I will paint on. The choice of canvas material, whether it's cotton, linen, or another fabric, can impact the absorbency, texture, and longevity of the surface. By making my own canvas, I can tailor it to my preferences, ensuring it aligns with the artistic vision I have for my paintings. Additionally, the process of stretching and preparing the canvas can be a meditative and hands-on experience, allowing me to establish a deeper connection with my artwork right from its foundation.
The choice of my Brushes:
Some of my brushes I use are very old and they give me the effects researched. The others brush came from Rosemary and Co and they’re so well done that they responded to the strokes I wanted. For me, they are the best brushes in the world. Brushes come in various shapes and sizes, each suited for different techniques and details. Round brushes are versatile and commonly used for general painting, while flat brushes are great for large areas and broad strokes. Filbert brushes have a rounded, flat shape and can be used for both broad strokes and finer details.
Investing in high-quality brushes can make a significant difference in your painting experience and the results. Better-quality brushes tend to have better construction, retain their shape, and hold paint more effectively. They also tend to last longer with proper care.
Remember, the choice of brushes and colours ultimately depends on your personal style, preferences, and the effect you want to achieve in your art. Explore different options, practice, and find what works best for you.
