Have you seen sensuous girls in tastefully erotic portrayals? The paintings you would have glimpsed must have had sheer anatomical accuracy. Yes we are talking of figurative paintings. Depending upon the preference of a painter and even the present day’s need of customization, figurative paintings generally have nudity or semi nudity in its compass. Figurative paintings do not only show the artist’s emotion, it verily transforms the entire range of his emotions on the canvas. Sometimes when we see the anatomical precision and perfection of contour, it is actually the edge of his heart which dances on the surface of the painting. Figurative paintings capture the anonymity of a subject through careful handling of belief of a subject rather than individual interpretation. The figurative paintings challenge the entire scope of an individual. Emotionally and intelligently it overhauls him towards larger perspective gathering and greater vision. Figurative paintings are generally created more for the sake of preserving beauty than thinking of investments. Figurative painting is tried in the oil medium as a general rule. Experimenting painters also try it on acrylic. Watercolors destroy its effect somewhat as it is not possible for all the contours of a body to be represented in this medium. Further, the oil medium happily soaks bold and soft use of color. Figurative paintings are best created on canvas. Canvases are generally made of cotton or linen. Cotton made from hard-duty fabric has always been the favorite but at the same time it is linen which has cut the mustard of late. It is because linen does not stretch and holds the texture of canvas brilliantly. Today artists are looking to use primer coats a on the canvases to create better stretching options. They also look to create the magic of texture in contrast to the oil. It’s amazing how figurative paintings thrive this way. Acrylic as a medium looks to play with the suspended polymer solution. It is very versatile and dries out quite fast. Once a film is made, fresh film can be quickly used on the existing film. Such quick spread of film helps with providing beauty to a figurative painting. Having said this, it is important to keep a cloth ready to wipe the acrylic prior to putting a film on the canvas. This is because it might create a blotch. Though acrylic could have been a great foil for figurative painting, its progress is hampered as acrylic works best on paper and figurative paintings work best on canvas.
