How do I line my signature up so that it fits?
Signing a painting brings out my inner perfectionist; I usually have to wipe out and sign a painting a few times before I get it right. I Just signed this one today and I think I have a better way to sign paintings now.
My signature is very linear and spaced out evenly, which causes me trouble when I try and fit it into a corner. What I did this time was I signed it backwards, starting with the date first. This way I know where the signature will end.
Another tip to remember is that you have to leave at leave 1/2 an inch for the frame to cover the canvas.
This is also the only time where I use a small, soft brush. A small watercolor brush is necessary for this type of signature.
It's not easy to have an academic signature, but the aesthetic is worth the difficulty
