The placement of the artwork


A watercolor or acrylic animal painting can be altered by continuous exposure to daylight. The colors become dull and dark. Therefore, to preserve the condition of this painting and facilitate its maintenance, the location is to be taken into account.

Among others, it is necessary to choose a wall perpendicular to the window. This location will indirectly protect the canvas from heat and ultraviolet rays. In addition, it must be accessible to facilitate the maintenance of the painting. Note that dust can damage the canvas.

The lighting is also an important factor, because the heat produced by the lamp can change the appearance of the painting. Thus, an LED bulb is ideal for illuminating the room, because the light it emits does not harm the painting.
