February 20, 2007 11:49am CST
Hii i recently went to an art gallery and was so amazed at the oil on canvas and acrylic on canvas paintings that i felt they are lively real things infront of my eyes..I was greatly inspired with those paintings and so suddenly there was a sudden inrush of strong desire inside me that i should start painting and im now seriously thinking to put my thoughts through paintings, but the sad part is i literally dont have any idea about how these oil or acrylic paintings are made.. So my dear mylot friends help me in giving what ever information you can regarding paintings as to how start painting,what are the basic things i need to buy,how oil painting is to be done etc..Thanks in advance..
