Framing Paintings for Sale

Started this discussion. Last reply by Karen Ilari Jul 2, 2014. 10 Replies

"Elizabeth, thanks so much for the information.  Will check out the sites and perhaps try a new surface.  I find that it can be hard to get clear lines and detail on canvas and thought perhaps some of the other surface options might be more…"

Profile Information

How long have you been painting? Doing any kind of art?
I've been painting seriously since 2010 but dabbled before that.
What other mediums have you used?
Water mixable oils, pencil, colored pencil, watercolor (fail).
Are their specific things you would like to learn?
how to use acrylics more fully so the paintings don't look like graphic arts projects - more loose painting/blended look like oils. I like the look of oils but only have time to paint on weekends and the wait time kills me.
Where did you learn about this website?
googled acrylic painting instruction
