Artfinder x Liquitex

Artists Features

In September, we teamed up with Artfinder to bring you a spectacular competition in honour of the new Muted Collection. 226 artists from 37 countries submitted 489 artworks, all of them exploring the theme of ‘muted’.
 

We sent a Liquitex sample pack to all the artists who entered and the top 50 most loved artists on Artfinder were sent an Intermixability Trial Box.

Valerie Thomson's 'The Wonder of Days II' was the Gold Star winner, and Kume Bryant's 'Enchanted Winter' and Claire Desjardin's 'I See That You Made An Effort' were our runners-up. All three artists received a Muted Collection set of their choice (made up of Ink, Soft Body or Heavy Body).

                                                                   Read on to meet Valerie and learn about her thoughts on life as a full-time artist.

What Was Dada Art?

Artists Features, Tips and Ideas

Of the many movements that gathered impetus in the opening of the twentieth century, Dada was one that helped define art that came before, during and after it. And how did the Dada artists do this? By speaking, painting and sculpting complete and utter nonsense.

As well as painting, collage and sculpture, Dada artists explored other avenues, like poetry. Written without agenda or definition, this was pioneered by Tristan Tzara. He would cut up a printed article, put all the words in a bag, shake it up and take out the words, one by one. He theorised that the happenstance of this poem would reflect the poet’s inner nature.

Preparing a stable surface for painting

Paints and Tools, Tips and Ideas

There may be certain instances when an artist is not concerned with their work lasting a long time; maybe for a one time installation piece or possibly they want their work to speak to the temporary nature of all things. However, most of us would like our work to live on as a legacy of who we were or what we had to say. Me? I’m just hoping my kids don’t throw it all in a trash bin some day!

So what can we do to ensure that our work will stand the test of time? We can start by using the best professional grade art materials available. Ah-hem, Liquitex anyone? But is that really the start? No, think of it this way; a good painting surface is just like the foundation of a house. You can build me the most beautiful house, but if the foundation is weak it will fall apart sooner or later and I will not be happy! Keeping that in mind let’s discuss the best surfaces for painting with all those great Liquitex products you’ve amassed over the years.

Why should you varnish your acrylic painting?

Tips and Ideas

While most artists know that varnishing is important, this important habit is frequently lost as their practice develops. Confusion starts because there are many varnishes to choose from and as work becomes more valuable, artists worry that they may damage their painting if the varnish is not applied properly. Eventually, they start to question whether varnishing is really needed at all.
