Creating a Triptych Art Painting

We’re going to look at how to create a triptch art canvas painting. Triptych art is a series of paintings placed together side by side, that together make a whole.
Initial doodles- The first thing you need to do to create your painting is to simply doodle. Work with different styles, themes and ideas, when you have a number of different doodles. You can then choose your favourite from them, and then move on to doing it for real.
Sketching- Now that you have chosen your theme, you can begin sketching your painting for real. Try and develop the triptych canvas painting further than the doodles. Expand your ideas and add different dimensions to it.
Choosing your paint- Either acrylics or oil can work here. Note that oils will take a lot longer to dry than acrylics, making them better for longer projects. Choose which pain works best for you and apply it to your triptych canvas painting.
Applying the paint- Now it’s time to paint. Carefully choose your colours, based on what you are trying to achieve. If you are planning on painting flowers, bright, pretty colours may be the best idea. However, if you are trying to tell a grim story, darker colours will work better. It’s all about making sure your triptych canvas painting matches the thing you are trying to portray.
Black outlines- This may not work with all paintings, however it is a personal preference for me. Adding black outlines adds dimension to the painting, making it come alive and stand out clearly.
Finishing touches- You’re almost finished with your triptych canvas painting. Add the finishing touches to your piece, and make sure everything is how you planned.
