Remember, in childhood there were special drawings divided into parts. Each part had its own digital designation and the color in which it had to be painted.
Now such images have moved to the “adult” format. Painting by numbers. There were various options on canvas and even wood.
Painting by numbers on canvas is usually easier to paint than on a tree. Because the canvas is a porous, textured material and paint strokes are very easy to lay on it and quickly absorbed. And the end result will delight you with the maximum similarity with high art 😉
There are also general recommendations on how to draw pictures by numbers correctly:
- Work through the dark areas first, and then move on to the light ones
Thus, it is very convenient to paint, because the light shades on the not fully painted picture merge with the whiteness of the canvas and then it is more difficult to understand which sector is painted and which is not.
- First of all, color large areas, and then move on to small ones
Thanks to this method, you will be able to correctly assess color priorities, place accents, giving the picture a zest. It is more convenient to paint this way, because by coloring large areas it seems that half of the work has already been done ;).
- Work from the central objects to the edges
Thus, you will not spoil the picture by accidentally touching the dry paint. This is especially true for those who prefer paintings by numbers on a tree, where the strokes often turn out to be thick enough and dry for a long time.
- Draw from top to bottom
This method is similar to the previous one and prevents accidental erasure of paints during operation. Also, by coloring all the objects in a row, you will not have to go back to small unpainted segments, look for numbers and paints, the picture will be completely drawn immediately.
In addition, there are some other points that will be useful to you when working with such paintings:
If it is not provided in your set, take a picture of the drawing before starting work. In case of an error, it will be possible to compare colors with it. Our kits have a checklist. The complete set of our kit.
- Numbering of light tones
After the light paint dries, its number often becomes visible. To avoid this, experienced draftsmen are advised to wipe the numbers with an ordinary eraser.
To make the border between the colors not so conspicuous, after drawing, mix two adjacent colors and walk along the border with the resulting shade. You will like the effect.
