Painting, in the interior or exterior, is undoubtedly one of the easiest as well as cheapest ways to update your New York home. Aside from using a computer, digital painting differs from conventional painting styles in that it is not linear. This results in artists being able to make any changes to their work independently and paint in layers. One of the advantages that digital art has is the ability to redo or undo any work that you have done. You are able to experiment more because of it without any fear of making mistakes.

Dry your larger brushes by carefully squeezing them against the inside of the coffee can, then slapping the bristles against a brush beater rack mounted inside of a tall kitchen trash basket to remove the remainder of the thinner. Smaller brushes can be cleaned by wiping them with paper towel or a rag (I highly recommend using Viva paper towels because they are very absorbent). Do not return the brushes to their plastic bags after use, this will cause the bristles to become limp. Never clean your Bob Ross brushes with soap and water or detergent as this will destroy the natural strength of the bristles. Store your brushes with bristles up or lying flat.
When it comes to working with wood, prep work makes all the difference. Begin with cleaning the surface because staircases are notoriously dirty with all the spindles and risers. Wash every part of the canvas. If the stairs have been painted or stained in the past, you need to remove the traces of the previous coats so that the new paint adheres quickly and stays for a long time. You do not need to buy or rent a sanding machine. A 150-grit sandpaper is sufficient to remove the sheen. Use a wood-filler to fill dents in the wood caused by heels, pet claws, etc. Do not forget to use a primer so as to seal the wood and prevent unnecessary color seepage into the surface.
With the rise of modern industrial civilization, painting materials of Western painting have been completely out of handmade stage. Especially in the past ten or twenty years due to the rapid development of modern technology, the new painting materials of various properties are constantly emerging and many oil painting materials are unheard of before. All kinds of drying oil, quick-drying paint and water paint can make all kinds of thick, thin, coarse, fine and different base materials with quick drying and strong toughness. A variety of new materials has greatly enriched the expression of oil painting language and the painters can have no restrictions of any kind in the creation, only to consider how to achieve the best visual effect.
