Just started painting

Still trying to figure out how to use this site. Is this where I would put one of my paintings to get feedback? I would really like some real feedback besides what I get from friends and family.

Re: Just started painting

If you're using acrylics, then yes, this is where you should post your paintings. If you're using oils or watercolors, there are other threads that will give you the feedback you're looking for. Make sure that you say that comments and critiques are welcome. Welcome to Wet Canvas!

Re: Just started painting

Welcome Cheryl! Yes, and you can also post them according to subject matter in the various forums. Give size, medium, etc. For example if you had a cat pet portrait done in acrylics, you could post in this forum then in Animals as a cross post.

Re: Just started painting

Welcome Cheryl!
To navigate the site, because it is huge and confusing, go to the bottom right of almost any page and you will a Forum Jump .... listed there are all the forums on the site .... first the general ones, then all those medium-based forums, like Acrylics, Oils, watercolours followed by all the subject-based forums, like Portraiture, Figure, Landscape etc.

You will get used to it, so please don't feel lost!

Re: Just started painting

Got it finally. I had to add it by itself without a message. It's painted on a 9x12 canvas and I used as few different brands of acrylic paint. C&c welcome

Re: Just started painting

Very nice Cheryl. I particularly like the first one. The tree on the right is very well done and is very vibrant. Your little waterfall is very good too. Nice work!

Re: Just started painting

Nice work. You say you just started?

Yes you can post multiple pictures in one thread. If you want to put them in separate threads you can only post one a day in the acrylic forum. It is usually a good idea to post them separately if you want more thorough critiques. Plus some people might not return to a thread they already looked at unless it's a work in progress kind of thing.
