Acrylic Painting Layering Trick: Drawing Over My Painting W/A Pencil


Hi guys. Today, I’m going to talk to you about why I sometimes like to draw over my painting with a pencil. Before we get into that though, I make videos with tips to help you improve your artwork and sharing my thoughts on art related topics three days a week. So, if you’re interested in that, make sure to subscribe and hit the bell. You probably think that the order of painting things is – You draw everything out, and then you fill it in with paint. But I sometimes run into problems with this. Such as trying to paint around tiny details. Another approach is to paint everything out and then paint the details on top of it. But I don’t have that much control with my brush. At least, I don’t have the patience that it would take to have that much control. You know what I mean? I personally find it much easier to block everything in and then take a charcoal pencil; either black or white, depending on the color of the paint that I’ve used to block in and draw my details. That gives me kind of a map to as to where to put things. And then I can just fill in the shapes that I drew. If you’re going to use this method, I recommend choosing a paint that has kind of matte finish or mixing a matte medium into your paint. And this was learned from experience. I don’t like on the paint too heavily. I hope you enjoyed this. I’ll see you next time. Bye.
