What You Should Know Before Painting Outdoor Sketches?

When the weather is not stable, it may not necessarily allow you to instantly complete the work on the spot. But to paint some color sketches needs much time, so you can use them as a reference, and then go back to the studio and make a creation on the basis of this. Surround yourself with nature and feel the natural environment around you, then you will be able to express the unique customs special climate condition in a particular location and condition, and this is the charm of landscape painting.
Oil paint is the ideal outdoor media. If you use small-sized canvas or palette, you will be able to quickly cover them with paint. Small color sketches made before creation are often painted on cardboard or paper. These two kinds of substrates are very suitable for drawing color sketches. You can also buy some special sketch painting paper whose price is not expensive. But some artists don’t like this kind of sketch paper, because their surface is somewhat sticky, while others think they are very easy to use.
Many artists have experienced the sunburns, insect bites, gusts of wind and heavy rain. Of course, no matter whatever the weather, it is always ready for an umbrella so as to avoid your hard work being destroyed on one day. These preparations are not redundant, because if the body is uncomfortable, your painting ability will be declined.
To some extent, the reason why the scenery is favored by most painters is they think the scenery is easier to draw than the portrait or construction. But even you do not need to draw them completely the same with the object (if there is no need to make the lines of mountain and objects the same in the painting), but careful observation and skillful painting techniques are still very important here. For composition needs, it is completely allowable if moving one object (such as a tree) from one side to the other. But if you arbitrarily change the object’s shape, you will not be able to hold its own characteristics, and then it will lose the meaning of sketch.
So in the ordinary case, unless you have a well-thought-out plan about the whole painting, otherwise the painting is better from scratch in order to establish the relationship between the main parts of each other on the painting. And don’t forget that landscape painting is a perspective, like a river, the fence and field. Such kind of object and the proportion of perspective are crucial for the painting. The requirement for these relationships in painting plain scenery is more precise. You will surprisingly find that in your eyes, the middle great lake appears on your view as a narrow band. If you are a beginner, at this time you may still have to measure with the actual reference. Pick up a pencil or brush pen, and then poison in the barrel with your thumb. In this way, measure the object’s length and width ratio.
