Having a house that is cozy and has an inviting atmosphere depends largely on its interior designs and talking about this aspect, getting the service of house painters is something that you must consider. Remember that your home is the place where you get comfort and peace of mind after a tiring day from work. Your home interior gives you a relaxing environment which you need to go on in life. When it comes to the exterior phase, the painting also plays a vital role although the maintenance needed in the interior painting is lesser compared outside.

 

Thinking that hiring a professional house painter in Somerset West will only mean additional expense is a misconception. Although you may say that you can paint your house on your own, getting the service from the experts will mean a task excellently done. You will realize later on that you can save in the long run because a well-applied paint using some techniques and strategies, will also last longer.

 

A house painter in Cape Town can also be considered as a decorator that not only makes your home beautiful but also protects it from water damage, corrosion, rust, insects, and molds. A paint master is someone that is well-skilled in mixing the paint, having an available supply of thinners, oils, pigments, and driers. The painter will determine an appropriate mixture depending on the job particularly on the material that it will be applied to like if it is made from concrete, wood or metal.

 

There are different paintings and decoration services that a professional one can do like making an accent wall, sign writing to object gliding and furniture finishing or refinishing. They are also responsible for all the preparations needed before painting. These include sanding, scraping, wallpaper removal, wood or drywall repair, caulking, stain removal, patching, filling of nail holes or other defects with putty or plaster as well as taping and priming. Cleaning also needs to be done by the contracted painter.

 

This shows that the duties and responsibilities of house painters also improve over time. If before they are only responsible for mixing and applying the paint, now all the mentioned tasks must also be considered if the need arises. This also means that proper training and experience is needed for a house painter to accomplish his task excellently.

 

When it comes to your home, whether it is the interior or exterior phase, you want nothing but the best. Choosing the right color is essential because it will give you a relaxing ambiance that you deserve. Keep in mind to be clear with your needs so that the contracted painter will help you achieve the result that you truly wanted. Having the things in your mind that you wish to achieve before the initial stage of the project must always be considered. This will make the whole process run smoothly. You do not want to experience and troubles or delays during the work, right? Keep in mind that all of these depend on you.

Painting

We learnt how to paint murals. We painted on walls and unhinged cupboard doors – anything that didn’t move! We even painted on a reclining colleague because we found him sprawled over the workbench pretending to be asleep. To prove he wasn’t we undid his shirt and painted his chest! Sorry John!

After 2 years of experimenting in different media (including body painting!) I sat my A level in Art. And failed! But I knew I couldn’t ignore this strong creative streak in me, and was determined to get onto an art school foundation course.

With my portfolio of drawings and paintings I managed to get into Bournemouth and Poole college of Art where we continued to experiment with different media such as etching, lithography, screen printing, clay…even wood and plastic, but, yet again – you guessed it – no watercolor!

After a year on this broadly based course I chose to study graphic design over fine art because (and this is common to so many “undiscovered” artists), I wanted to make a living once I graduated!

And graphic design will always offer more job opportunities than fine art!

Now at this point I don’t want you to think that I have an advantage over you if you haven’t been to art school. As I’ll show you later, it’s the techniques that are used in watercolor painting that help to separate the amateur from the professional.


Techniques that I wasn’t taught in four years at art school!

From time to time, alongside a successful career in advertising, I’ve dabbled (spelt s-t-r-u-g-g-l-e-d) with watercolors, but seldom did the paintings turn out how I wanted them to. I look back now at some paintings that I tackled over and over again but to this day know I hadn’t achieved what I set out to do.
