One of the most difficult things for painters to learn is all edges are not the same. We as artists use edges to move the viewer through the painting and convey a sense of distance, of atmospheric perspective.
When studying Old Masters you will notice some edges are sharp, some seem to disappear, while others are indistinct. Sharp or hard edges come forward. Lost edges seem to disappear into the background or into objects next to them. Soft edges provide a sense of distance.
Knowing how to achieve different edges and where and when to use them to your advantage will bring your painting to the next level.
Please buy the best quality paints you can. I recommend oil paints, professional grade.
