Mistake # 1 – You Do Not Give Enough Of Variety For Your Painting.
If you want to make your painting interesting you will have to give enough of variety so the viewer is curious and wishes to come back to observe it.

And your painting shouldn’t be too technical as it can limit to use your creativity at fullest. By saying this I do not mean that you that you shouldn’t study technical theories but at a certain level you have to put all the stuff on the back burner and let the ideas flow.
Mistake # 3 – Not Using Good Quality Art Materials.
When we are talking about good art supplies, you should use good quality acrylic paint as well as the brushes. A cheap brush will give you a painting which will look cheap as well. Good quality acrylic paints last for longer and gives a classy effect, so never compromise on the art supplies.
Mistake # 4 – You Are Not Using Sufficient Paint.
The common mistake which all the beginners tend to make is reloading their brush again and again. Do not waste the paint as you should be concerned about cost supplies. Do not scrub the paint on the canvas or you will end up with staining rather than painting.
Mistake # 5 – Avoid Over Thinking.
Do not make any sort of wrong conclusions for your painting. This way you will be completely frustrated and will quit. Many beginners get discouraged. Trust your creativity and abilities, relax and just go on.
