Choose your canvas carefully
Nobody wants to paint on the surface that is creased, flimsy, and can’t stay straight? The canvas is a base, and structure of the artwork. It should be in a best condition to achieve the best results. Quality must be strong so it does not crease. In a few kits this canvas is rolled or folded very tightly that one will not take out the creases or constant turning of that canvas. It is irritating and distracting. I will suggest when ordering and buying one, opt for the framed one. It can save up a lot of your time since it is stretched, ironed and prepped, all ready to start.
Start from the top
One challenging thing for the amateur artist is how and where to start. There are a lot of different approaches to it but the right approach is doing this in a descending order; starting from its top. Suppose you’re right handed, you can start from its top left corner. Doing so can ensure that there is not any smudging & painting goes very smooth.
Take largest area first to smallest and darkest to lightest color
This is an important tip when having fun on your numbers canvas, begin with just one color & fill all spaces with it, and commencing from largest area & work out your way to smallest one. Well, it saves you more time & energy that you can waste on washing each time you switch the paint pots & not to forget struggle it needs to clean your brushes, and get rid of paint traces.
