It is very important that you plan everything before you start your painting work. If you plan your painting work, then it will be sure helpful to you as you know what you need to do exactly. Some people do not prefer to plan a work and keep doing their work as per current thought and situation only. Sometimes this does works, but over all there will also be a chance of facing a big failure.
Here are some important points that you need to consider for creating a better plan for your painting work.
1. Choose the subject.
First of all, it is very important that you decide your painting subject, because the painting technique and other support system depend on the subject that you will select. In case if you have only a small idea about drawing subject, then decide the painting composition and some basic elements to create a further plan of the paint work.
2. Painting Format.
Once you are clear with the painting subject, now choose a format for the support system for creating a painting. You decide whether it should be a landscape or portrait. Also choose the canvas size according to the over all dimensions of the painting.
3. Painting Size.
This is a very important and conscious decision to make. You should have the exact size of paper as required to create a painting. If you purchase canvases which are primed and stretched, then you will have various sizes for your painting work.
4. Paint Media Selection.
If you always use one paint media, then there will be no issue regarding the selection of paint media. Of course you need to decide a technique every time even though you use always the same media. For an example if you use acrylic paints every time, then you have to decide the kind of acrylic paint you will use for this painting work, like thick or thin thin paint.
