ZENAIDA MACROURA, 8" x 10" ACRYLIC PAINTING. I used to go dove hunting with my dad when I was little. I remember attempting to retrieve any bird he shot with our dog, Jiggs. I was about six then.
The simplest way to clean up an oil or acrylic painting on canvas is to use a white cotton cloth soaked in a gentle soapy water; olive oil–based soap works wonders. You’ll be surprised to see how much grime comes off. Be gentle with paintings with thick impasto.
