Contest Rules

Traditional Painting Masterpieces
Post your best traditional medium painting. Only paintings with physical mediums (ex: oil, acrylic, gouache, watercolor, tempera, etc...) will be allowed in this contest.

To celebrate the summer, this contest is open to traditional paintings! Every style is allowed, but it has to be physical mediums, digital mediums are not allowed for this one.

Painting is the practice of applying paint, pigment, color or other medium to a surface (support base). The medium is commonly applied to the base with a brush but other implements, such as knives, sponges, and airbrushes, can be used. In art, the term painting describes both the act and the result of the action. However, painting is also used outside of art as a common trade among craftsmen and builders. Paintings may have for their support such surfaces as walls, paper, canvas, wood, glass, lacquer, clay, leaf, copper or concrete, and may incorporate multiple other materials including sand, clay, paper, gold leaf as well as objects.
