  • How to get texture into your art.


In this section you will find some articles about various painting and drawing techniques. These will be slightly more comprehensive than the quick info/tips section and will helpfully also be useful, even if they do not necessarily directly relate to painting texture.

Check out the menu options in the Pages list to the right to see what articles there are.

It is always useful to know some things about drawing and colour theory for example before embarking on painting and these articles are intended as a basic guideline for some of the things you might need or want to know about painting and drawing.

As always feel free to comment on any of the articles and add your own tips or ways of working with paint or in drawing. All painting and drawing articles are from experience and what I have been taught in the past but there are obviously always different ways of doing things for different artists.

    Hi Jane, thanks for your comments. The painting at the top was created using my texture mix and I applied it in different patterns with a cake slice onto the canvas, leaving some of the canvas free from texture. I also used some other tools to make marks and patterns in the texture before leaving it to dry. I then put a coat of cream paint on before both dry brushing with different colours and using washes to apply layers of colour. This might be the kind of painting that I will try and do a video on when I do my next one!
