Hi people! Just joined the drawmixpaint forum and I have one big question after trying my first very own painting. Once l have mixed my colors (they look right) and then go to paint on the canvas..they look so off, so different! my bright yellow looks so dull and green!
Am painting from a photograph so if l apply some paint on the photograph to see if the color matches (like Mark did), it looks good but on my canvas, it looks dull, thin, dirty...and l can see some of the brown stained canvas if you look carefully.
Tell me what am l doing wrong? is my paint too thin? or can l stain the canvas white? cz my colors are not bright and they look like they are changing..
I didnt get venice turpentine in my country so l just used a regular medium from the art store. is that okay for painting
