Canvas Painting

As an artist, I pride myself in my canvas painting abilities. Since most people aren’t familiar canvas painting, I will say that it’s not easy. This type of painting is usually performed on a linen or cotton canvas. A linen canvas is more expensive, but that is what professionals use for creating art. For a beginner or more casual artist, cotton is an affordable alternative. In the beginning you will be trying new techniques and will go through canvas quick.

Prepare Your Painting

If you have the time to do this, prepare your painting. You may want to do this on a weekend when you’ll have more time. Preparing it from home takes more time, but it also saves more money. You can buy fabrics like linen then glue them onto your canvas board. Make sure to use acrylic glue to keep the materials together.

Selling Your Work

If your interested in painting for more than just a hobby then consider Etsy. Etsy is a website known for selling arts and crafts. On their website you”ll see many paintings already on sale. These paintings range from landscape art to portraits of people. This is not amateur art either, these paintings are high quality work. Anyone would be proud to have art like this in their home.

Finding Your Passion

I urge you to find your passion, whether it is canvas painting or not. When I am creating some type of art I am at my happiest. Besides spending time with my husband of course. There is something so therapeutic about painting. It’s as if all your stresses are melted away on the canvas. If you have a different passion like photography, then check out my other article about shopping for a DSLR camera.
