Limit your use of lay­ers

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

Don’t keep too many lay­ers when you paint. Keep only the im­por­tant masks, so that you can pre­serve the sil­hou­ettes. Tra­di­tional painters don’t have any ac­cess to lay­ers, which forces them to think about what they want to paint be­fore putting the brush­stroke down. Keep­ing all your lay­ers is a sign that you’re not com­mit­ted enough to the artis­tic choices that you’ve made. Try to let go of mul­ti­ple lay­ers, and learn how you can take a paint­ing to com­ple­tion while mak­ing mis­takes.
