    I recently started oil painting on Artist Loft 48*48 canvas. My painting looks great from a distance but if sun rays fall or under the lightbulb, I see brush strokes, lifeless painting which looks dry and dull., uneven surfaces with few areas showing up the texture of the canvas. Please help me out. What should I do? Where I’m going wrong?

    One more question, I directly paint on Artist loft canvas. Is that okay or do I have to do anything else for the painting to last longer?

    Thank you,
