Acrylic Paint Part 2 : Getting Started

Part 1. Select a good location

As with most things, painting is done best in natural light. Set up your painting station near an open window or a room that has a lot of natural light. You’ll be able to see small nuances in your brush strokes and colors that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to pick out.


Part 2. Lay out all your supplies

Each artist has their own way of setting up their supplies, but it is best to get them all placed how you like them before you start painting. Fill your jars with water, get out the paintbrushes and paints you want to use, and put your palette in the most ideal location. You may want to put on your smock or old t shirt at this time as well.


Part. 3 Decide on your subject

As a beginner painter, you may have an idea of what you want to paint, or you may be looking for some direction. Think about possible subjects or models you could use for your first painting. It is easiest to work from a 3-D object or photograph, rather than putting paint to something a mental picture. If you’re not sure what to paint, easy paint subjects for beginners include:

  • A bowl of fruit
  • A vase of flowers
  • Objects in your home
  • A sunrise/sunset


Part 4. Create a rough sketch

If you feel confident in your ability to paint exactly what you see, then you can go ahead and jump right into the painting. Most people, however, require an outline to follow along with their paint brush. Use a regular pencil to roughly sketch the outline of major shapes directly onto your canvas; don’t worry about details or shading too much.

  • You can do multiple sketches on paper before ever turning to do one on canvas, just to make sure you are confident with your drawing of your subject.


Part 5. Mix your paints

It is a common mistake to mix paints as you work, rather than mixing them all before you start. Use your time and paint efficiently by mixing all your paints – in all the colors you need – prior to starting your painting. In this case, it is better to be safe than sorry by mixing more paints than you are likely to use. You can store extra paint for future paintings, but it will be nearly impossible to mix the exact shade of paint twice.

  • Use a color wheel as a helpful reference for mixing your paints. All the basic colors can be made by mixing the primary hues (red, blue, and yellow), and more specific colors can be made by mixing the primary and secondary hues.
  • Remember, if you can’t get the exact shade of paint that you’re looking for with a limited paint palette, you can purchase nearly any color pre-mixed in tube or jar form from an art supply store.


Acrylic Paint Part 1. Getting the Right Supplies

If you’re looking for the vibrancy and quality of oil paints without spending nearly as much money or time, then acrylic painting is for you. Picking up acrylic painting is a fulfilling hobby and a great way to produce artwork for your home and friends.

Part 1. Choose your acrylic paint

Acrylic paint comes in dozens of brands and is available in either tubes or jars. Purchasing acrylic paint is one of the rare instances in which it is better to splurge and get a pricier brand. Cheap brands of acrylic paint aren’t as thickly pigmented as the more expensive brands, and will therefore require 2-3 more coats of paint to get the same vibrancy and color of a single coat of a higher priced paint brand.

  • To start, buy the most basic colors: titanium white, mars black, ultramarine blue, alizarin crimson, and yellow ochre. Most of the paint colors you’ll need can be made from a combination of those few hues.
  • Tubes of paint are typically preferred by beginners because you can purchase smaller quantities to start, but there is no difference in quality between a tube or a jar of acrylic paint.

Bali Artemedia provide various brands of the low quality, up to the professionals.
Acrylic Maries available sizes 30ml, 75ml, 120ml, 500ml up.
Acrylic Simbalion available sizes 75ml
Acrylic Reeves available sizes 75ml, 200ml, and 400ml
Sakura Acrylic available 20ml and 75ml sizes
Galeria Acrylic available sizes 120ml, 500ml and 1 liter
Amsterdam Acrylic available size 120ml & 500ml
Artist Acrylic available sizes 60ml & 200ml
Liquitex Heavy Body available sizes 59ml & 200ml

Part 2. Select a handful of paintbrushes

Paintbrushes are rather diverse and are categorized by two factors: the shape of the brush tip, and the material of the bristles. There are three different brush tip types: flat, rounded, and filbert (rounded and flat). There are many materials used to make paintbrush bristles, but the most common are synthetic and boar hair. Most beginner painters prefer synthetic brushes in an assortment of tip points.

  • Visit an art supply store Bali Artemedia all branchess and feel a few different brushes for a good idea of what you prefer. Synthetic brushes are softer and easier to clean than real fur brushes.
  • Unless you’re in it for the long run, don’t splurge on the paintbrushes. Although having good paint brushes to work with can be beneficial, it is more important to have quality paint.


Part 3 . Find a palette

You’ll need something to mix paint on, and to store paint on between painting sessions. If you’re feeling frugal, a paper or plastic plate will work just fine. Any wide, flat, clean surface can be used as a workable palette. However, because acrylic paints dry so incredibly fast, it may be beneficial to invest in a stay-wet palette. These incorporate a wet sponge and special stay-wet paper that keeps your paint moist and workable for several weeks at a time.

  • Keep plastic wrap or another cover of some sort on hand to preserve paint on your palette that you aren’t using at the time.
  • If you’re mixing large quantities of paint at once, it may be beneficial to have small cups/lids to store your paint between sessions. This will better preserve the acrylics than a plastic wrap covered palette.

Part 4.  Decide what to paint on

Acrylic paint is thick and heavy, and therefore can only be used on a few surfaces. The most common and popular acrylic surfaces are stretched canvas or canvas board, watercolor paper, or treated wood. You should have success painting on anything that isn’t greasy, oily, nor very porous.

  • If you’re afraid of painting on something expensive, start with watercolor paper and work your way up to canvas or wood.

Part 5. Gather other small items

With all of the aforementioned big-ticket items out of the way, you will need a few additional items that you likely have in your home. You will need 1-2 jars/cups for water, a palette knife, an old rag or cloth, a misting spray bottle for water, and soap to clean your paint brushes. These are all available in art supply stores if you don’t happen to have them, but none of them need to be specialty items.

  • Because acrylic paints dry notoriously fast, mist your painting/palette from time to time to keep the paints moist.
  • Consider wearing a smock or old shirt while painting to prevent staining your clothes with the acrylics.
  • Some painters like to lay down newspapers on their tabletops to prevent large messes.
