The sumi-e technique is known as Chinese ink painting. It is a traditional technique that originated in China over a thousand years ago and then spread to Japan and Korea. It is common to use Chinese ink and rice paper to create minimalist and elegant works.

Its main characteristics are its simplicity and the use of few materials. Artists use a bamboo brush and black India ink to create precise and delicate strokes. The emphasis is on form and line, and the use of bright and complex colours is avoided.

Attention to composition and balance is very important. Elements are placed on the page to create visual balance and a sense of harmony.

The sumi-e technique is often used to create artworks of landscapes, animals, flowers and other traditional subjects. Artists can use the technique to create realistic or abstract images, depending on their preference.

2. Airbrush technique

Airbrush painting is a technique that uses a painting tool that sprays paint onto a surface using compressed air. The airbrush is a pencil-shaped device that works through an air compressor and a hose that delivers the paint.

It is commonly used to apply thin, even layers of paint on a variety of surfaces, including paper, fabric, metal and plastic. Artists can control the amount and direction of paint with precision to create shading effects, gradients and intricate details.

The airbrush painting technique is often used for creating detailed illustrations, graphic design, automobile and motorbike decoration, scale models and other projects. It is also used in film and television production to create special effects and make-up for film.

3. Mural technique

Mural painting is a technique used to create works of art on large surfaces, such as walls and ceilings. Murals can be painted indoors or outdoors and can range in size from small art pieces to large installations.

A variety of materials and techniques, including acrylic paints, spray paints, brushes and rollers, are often used to create your artwork. Murals can be realistic or abstract and can be created to express a variety of themes and messages.

Murals can be an effective form of public art and can be used to raise awareness of social and political issues. They can also be used as decorative elements in public and private buildings, such as restaurants, shops and shopping centres.

It is ideal for creating artwork in public spaces such as government buildings, schools, hospitals and museums.

4. Collage technique

Collage painting is a technique that combines different materials and techniques to create a work of art. Collage is an art form that has been used for centuries, but became popular in the 20th century with artists such as Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque.

In the collage technique, artists combine different elements such as paper, fabric, wood, plastic, metal and other materials to create a composition on a flat surface. These elements can be painted, cut, torn, glued and superimposed to create a complex, textured image.

The collage technique is a versatile form of artistic expression, allowing artists to combine different materials and techniques to create something unique and personal.

Collages can be used to explore social, political or personal issues, or simply to create an attractive and visually interesting image.

It is ideal for creating abstract artworks and figurative compositions.

5. Graffiti technique

Graffiti is a technique used to create street art. Graffiti are images or messages painted on the walls of buildings, streets and other public places.

Artists working in the graffiti painting technique use spray paints, markers and stencils to create their works of art. Graffiti can range in size from small tags to large murals.

Graffiti has become a popular form of artistic expression around the world. Artists can use this technique to create political, social images or simply to beautify urban spaces.

However, graffiti can also be considered an illegal act and artists can face criminal charges for painting on private property without permission.

Graffiti artists must be highly skilled and have an understanding of composition, perspective and colour palette. They must also be able to work quickly and in often unfavourable conditions, such as in low-light or crowded places.

6. Digital painting technique

Digital painting technique is an art form that uses digital tools and techniques to create artwork on a computer screen or similar electronic device. This technique has gained popularity in recent years due to the increasing use of digital technology and the emergence of specialised software and applications for creating digital art.

Artists using the digital painting technique can work with a variety of tools, such as digital tablets, digital pens, touch screens and graphic design software programmes. These tools allow them to create images that can be easily manipulated, edited and corrected, and which can also be printed or shared online.

The digital painting technique allows artists to experiment with a wide variety of painting styles and techniques, ranging from watercolour and oil painting to abstract painting and pop art. It also allows them to work with an almost infinite range of colours and textures, which means they can create extremely detailed and realistic images.

Digital painting artists can also work with layers and masks, allowing them to add detail and adjust elements of their work without having to repaint everything from scratch. They can also save their work and return to it at any time to make further adjustments or changes.

The digital painting technique is used in a wide range of fields, including illustration, animation, graphic design and video games. Digital artists can also sell their artwork online or through specialised galleries.

7. Finger painting technique

Finger painting is a fun and creative way of making art using fingers instead of brushes. This technique is especially popular with young children, as it allows them to experiment with colours and textures in a tactile and sensory way.

To make finger painting, artists first prepare a palette of paint with different colours and textures. Then, they apply the paint directly onto the work surface, such as paper or cardboard. They then use their fingers to spread and mix the colours, creating unique designs and patterns.

Artists can experiment with different finger painting techniques, such as the stamping technique, in which the finger is pressed into the paint and applied to the work surface in the form of a fingerprint, or the stippling technique, in which the fingers are used to create small dots of colour.

Finger painting is an excellent way to introduce children to the world of art, as it allows them to experiment with different colours and textures in a safe way and without the need for expensive tools or materials. It can also be a relaxing and therapeutic way for adults to express themselves creatively without the need for advanced painting skills.


In short, there are many different techniques, each with its own characteristics and requirements. From watercolour to digital painting, each technique offers a unique opportunity for artists to express themselves and create unique and impressive works of art.

Both in the first article on painting techniques and in this one, we explained clearly and concisely what each of the techniques mentioned are about. Now all that remains is for you to choose which one you like best and put it into practice. You can also put them all into practice, according to your own taste.

We would also like to mention that in our Wine Gogh workshops we put more than one technique into practice so that our customers can learn everything they are interested in about art. Our teachers, who are artists themselves, are in charge of all this teaching, so you can't miss it!
