30 Excellent but Simple Acrylic Painting Ideas For Beginners

Acrylic Painting Ideas are not so common when you are a beginner. If you are into painting then you know that coming up with ideas on what to paint can be really difficult. When you are sitting there gazing into a white and blank canvas, you may find it a little scary. The fear of making a mess and ending wasting costly supplies that will also scare you.Here are some simple hints to get you to start painting:

  1. Make and maintain a folder with some reference materials. You can keep stunning visual ideas in a binder to get your creative juices flowing when you find that your imagination is just not up to it. This does not mean that you have to make exact copies of what in your folder, just use it to get the imagination going.
  2. Doodle and draw: Simply pick up plain paper and a pencil and let your fingers do the work. You will find that your mind will send some signals your hands you will end up drawing something. Apart from improving you skills at sketching, you will find that it is another way of getting creative ideas to flow.

When it comes to painting using acrylic paints, the thing to remember is that while it is easy to dilute and clean up, the paint also dries out pretty fast. This means that if you are just beginning, take it slow so that you there is less room for errors that have to be corrected later. However, on the flip side it does save a lot of time waiting for the painting to dry especially when you are painting layers. It is easier when the paint dries fast. You can draw inspiration on what to paint from the best and popular paintings of Pablo Picasso.

One of the things that you do when you use acrylic paints to paint, is create an abstract landscape. It can be good to look at while being relatively easy to do.

  • Start with creating bands of color horizontally. This will let the viewer see it as landscape.
  • You can experiment with smaller versions of the same before trying them out on a larger scale.
  • The use of colors can be carefully considered to render a more animated and modern look

All you will need to do this is some good quality canvas, along with acrylic paint, an assortment of brushes, water and some clothes and tissues for clean.
