One thing that acrylics are good for is painting over top of them. They give good texture because they dry so quickly—also one of my top reasons why I dislike them.
I am aiming to submit work into a show in an art gallery, preferably in the city, it’s just that I have this problem. But the day I do, I will post here so you will know.
I’m actually really stuck on this problem I have. Should I be framing the images, or should I just use the small canvases I bought, or should I just make paintings into prints? I don’t think you can submit prints to a gallery show though as a painter. It doesn’t matter to me really what mode I use to present them insomuch as I just need a mode
But it seriously stalls me. It is what is stalling me. My presentation. I have done decent stuff but on smaller pieces of paper that I do not have a frame for, nor intend to get framed. They’re weird sizes. I have to stop cutting my art paper into weird sizes.
If I could, I would submit the unframed photographed images as my pieces just to be juried because they are good as photos and prints. But would that not be weird to then not have the pictures in the show? I don’t even think you can do that. I wouldn’t want to.
