When learning to paint, start with understanding the way colors dry up, how brushes feel, etc. Most art teachers insist on making their students “play” with cheap acrylics for 30-45 minutes to let loose of their ambiguity. When beginner students have an art teacher who can teach step-by-step, it can accelerate their learning curve. In the beginning stages, you may start mixing colors to see what you get. It is often with getting used to the feel of the acrylic colors that you can paint better. You may purchase the basic primary colors at first to get a good range for your work. You can mix the paints with a palette knife when you don’t want to clean the brushes. Before purchasing a canvas, you can buy a pad of acrylic paper to practice on. If you have a bit of experience with drawing, it’ll complement your painting ideas much better. Also, note that having a spray water bottle next to you to keep the acrylic paints wet is crucial.

Drybrush is a popular technique where you apply paint straight out of the tube. Washing is another one where you dilute the acrylic so much so that it acts like watercolor, but being permanent. When you flick or splatter paint onto the canvas, it gives an abstract effect which can be used in creating abstract landscapes or starry nights. Another technique is dabbing where you apply paint on the corner of a sponge or even a piece of paper towel. For sharp and realistic details, you’ll need a small, fine brush to carefully paint them.
