If you are experiencing digital painting for the first time, then I am pleased to say that you will soon have a piece of artwork that you have painted yourself, because painting is so simple and easy. Don't be put off by the amount of lines, as the more numbers and lines you have, the more detailed the drawing will be. All you have to do is to set up the board, the paints, the brushes, the instructions, the colour reference, a glass of water to wash the brushes, a small cloth or a paper towel to dry the brushes and you are ready to start painting. It is a good idea to read the instructions carefully before painting. There are some details you should know ★①Grip the pen: the pen should be held 1-2 cm behind the metal barrel. ★②Pick up paint: Open the paint cap and use the tip to pick up as much paint as possible to fill up the pen tip. ★③Operating the brush: Place your hand gently on the canvas and use your knuckles to move the brush, not too fast and evenly, not too heavy or too light, follow the edges of the lines and cover the lines with the side wind of the brush so that the edges are clear and not hairy, fill in the colour blocks to be saturated and even, cover the outline lines and numbering completely, and fill in the fibres of the fabric. ★④When you have finished painting one colour and are about to paint a second colour, you must clean the brush and wipe the bristles on a paper towel before taking the next colour. ★5) Colour order: You can follow the order of the paint numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4 ...... to find the numbered areas on the screen to paint one by one, or not in the order of the numbers. There are still a lot of details that need to be fixed, such as numbers or outlines that are not covered, or colours that are not evenly painted, or the texture of the fabric that is not completely filled in, etc. If you are looking for perfection, you should fix these problems carefully. If you're looking for perfection, fix these problems carefully. Once all these problems have been rectified, you can apply a glossy colour enhancer to the surface of the painting, which will give your work a more saturated colour and a reflective coating to give it a more oil-painted feel. Painting tips The brush is divided into several positions: the tip, the side, the belly and the root. We use the tip when drawing small details or tracing lines, the side when drawing contours along the lines so that the contours are clean and clear, and the belly when drawing large colour blocks so that the drawing is faster. ◆② Dabbing paint: The brush must be well supplied with paint so that the brush strokes will be round, clear and full, so every few strokes should be supplemented by a dab of paint. If the paint is too dry, use the tip of the brush to lightly dip it in water. If it is too wet, use a paper towel to absorb some of the water. Special Painting Techniques Once you have filled in all the numbered areas you will have a stunning painting, but if you wish you can also transform your painting into a richer style by using the following techniques to make your painting even better. If you want to make the border between two blocks of colour softer and more natural, you can dry your brush and then dip it in a suitable amount of paint and lightly brush the edges of the blocks to make the border blurred and faded. (Note: the dashed part of the picture can be treated by the kneading method) 2. Thinly applied: After diluting the paint with water, a transparent layer of colour is gently applied to the dry surface of the painting to achieve a transparent effect. 3. Dabbing: Dab the edges of the colour block to create a smoky effect. This is achieved by dipping the tip of the brush into a saturated pigment and then gently dabbing the brush tip back and forth between the edges of the colour block, taking care to control the shape, size and density of the dots to achieve different effects. 4. Feathering over: To create a feathered effect on the edges of the blocks, use the brush to quickly sweep around the edges of the blocks to create a bristly texture. 5. Adding details: After painting, add details such as dots and lines to make the picture more vivid and alive. No skill required, just patience "Painting a digital oil painting is actually 'filling in the blanks'. There are lots of numbered spaces on a blank canvas, which is similar to cross-stitch. "No technique is required, just paint the colour marked '1' into the space marked '1'. " "People without professional training can do it on their own." It's not too difficult, and an average oil painting can be completed in just two or three days. "The process is very simple, similar to 'regular' colour painting. But it's a test of patience and care."
