I would like to know if you can draw on a canvas with Graphitint and erase it as often as needed?
There is so much I don't know about what I can do on a canvas without damaging the surface.
Can you give me a reference book or advise on the subject, please.
thanks in adance,
Yes, you can draw on canvas using Graphitint coloured pencils. I have seen artist use different colours for different stages of the drawing. Fist using blue and then going over the final drawing in red or brown. The only thing you have to watch out for is when you start to paint is the paint will pick up the colour pencil and will mix with the paint. You can get around this by either going over the drawing with acrylic or oil paint or spray the drawing with touch up vanish.
Hope this helps.
If you got your canvas ready to paint on then you already have the paint, you can just cover up what you don't like with a little touch-up!.
If you have a Gum Eraser then you can touch up oil paint by using the eraser to just wipe away what you may have done that you don't like.
Everyone makes mistakes, but until the paint has set somewhat you can also use a pallet knife to take it off too. Just be careful, the knife isn't sharp, but it can do damage to your canvas.
Same goes for wood, you can just about do all the above with a nice cut-out, any wood being used to oil paint on!
For the majority of the Renaissance, artists took great care to prepare their canvases for the application of oil paints. Light touches were added to prepped canvas sheets to give them a glossy, sleek look. Oil paints were then added to these canvases to create a non-textured appearance. The end result were paintings that looked like photographs of reality. for more information about Oil painting on canvas at -:
Yes, you can use Graphitint over the canvas and can erase it
using a gum eraser as many times as you want.
