Anyone who is interested in painting will certainly also be interested, at least for a while, in landscapes that can be portrayed in many different ways. For which landscape one decides in the acrylic painting, of course, is up to you. For example, those who want to paint a landscape from the Bavarian Black Forest in the middle of northern Germany will not have an “unsolvable” problem with it.

Because through photography and the Internet, you can paint pictures and postcards from all over the world in acrylic. You simply take the finished “mass pictures” as a template and make your own and special out of it. Of course, this is by a “real” painter, not enough, only from other pictures, so that you can look out every now and then in the vicinity for a beautiful landscape that can be painted directly on site.

Anyone who sees a beautiful landscape on vacation, which should be painted in acrylic, can take a picture of it and paint it later. On a canvas, this motif can be transferred with the instructions for slide pictures, as a preliminary drawing. Sunsets can be drawn and painted just as well as old primeval forests or particularly beautiful cultural landscapes, in which particularly beautiful houses of people fit.

In contrast to, for example, oil paints, a primer can be dispensed with when painting with acrylic paints. Acrylic paints can be applied to almost any solid and grease-free surface. At the same time they are characterized by the short drying time. Even if a painting base is used, which absorbs the colors strongly, the acrylic binder remains in the colors. Therefore, the acrylics dry to a stable and durable color film. However, the colors on an untreated painting ground behave a little differently than on a ground with primer. In addition, the surface structure and the coloring of the ground influence the subsequent image effect. Especially with landscape paintings and abstract paintings, but also when creating color gradients, this effect is often deliberately used.

But now the question arises, which materials are particularly well suited and what should be considered when working on untreated painting grounds. Raw fabrics such as cotton, nettle and linen are ideal for acrylic paintings that do without a primer. The hobby artist can buy such materials in the art supply, but also in the normal fabric shop. Even old bed sheets or tablecloths are great as a picture carrier. Raw cotton fabrics are characterized by their uneven surface and their natural color in a light beige. Landscape paintings and paintings that are dominated by natural and earthy colors are particularly effective on raw cotton fabrics. Cotton fabrics in fine qualities are called nettles. If raw cotton fabric is washed before painting, it will be a little lighter. Linen fabrics are naturally quite dark.

But on this planet, there are completely different landscapes that find their way into the acrylic paintings much less frequently. These include the sub-water views. To give you an example, just think of the Great Berrier Reef. Every year, thousands of tourists take pictures of these wonderful underwater worlds. But rarely are they presented in the much friendlier style of acrylic paintings. If you are honest, but there is also a relatively practical reason or a “comprehensible” excuse: It is difficult! The sub-water worlds are very diverse and colorful, especially here at the coral reefs. In addition, there are many different species that can be in the focus of your own camera.

Therefore, if ever, only small landscapes in acrylic or oil paintings brought. For those who only start to bring the beautiful pictures of their last diving holiday in acrylic, they can concentrate on individual animals for a start. Over time you can then always more pictures, e.g. pull out of his vacation video. The first time you only paint a special fish, the next time you can go to a group of fish or even paint a fish in front of a beautiful coral. Bit by bit, you can bring your memories to the screen. Even the coloring pages for these sub-water landscapes can be easily created today. You take a screenshot of your digital video and copy the printout onto a slide.
