How can I fix this?
I did an acrylic 16x20 painting of a friends house as a gift, it came out better than I expected. The problem I had though was when I first sketched it out in an ordinary pencil that I found around the house and it smeared terribly as I started to paint from top first,but I managed to cover it with paint as I finished. Well, here I am doing another for commission, only this is a 22x36 and I did it again, sketched the whole house. Is there any spray I can use over the pencil sketch that will prevent the smearing? and won't affect the acrylic paint when I appy it? Another question, I always used Matte finish, do you think if I used gloss, it will give it more of an oil painting look?
