Painting techniques for digital oil painting

If you want to make the border between two blocks of color soft and natural, you can dry the brush and then dip it into the right amount of paint to gently sweep the edges of the block of color to make the border blurred and vague.
The following techniques can be used when painting.
Thin painting method.
After diluting the paint with water, gently cover the dried picture with a transparent layer of color to achieve the effect of a transparent bottom.
Dot color method.
The method of dabbing at the edges of the color block can be used for the effect of smoke particles. The method is to dip the pen tip into the full pigment and then use the pen tip to gently dab back and forth between the edges of the color block, paying attention to controlling the shape, size and density of the color dots to achieve different effects.
Feathering method.
To create a feathery effect on the borders of the color blocks, you can use the brush to quickly sweep around the edges of the blocks to create a hairy texture.
After painting the whole painting, you can add some details like dots and lines, which will make the picture more vivid and full of life.
After finishing the digital oil painting, when the paint is dry, brush a layer of special oil painting "varnish" evenly. The varnish can protect the paint and canvas, and make the picture look brighter and have a better texture.
