I am sure there is at least one person with this same problem. I get so involved in painting that I don't realize my posture until it's too late. I spent 4 hours on Friday and Saturday fully painting 2 sisters and just painting the armor and robes on the rest. My back is hurting a bit today. Anyone found any techniques to eliminate the back pain when painting?

Its really a matter of watching how you paint. Paint with a surface slightly higher then you would normally do and that will restrict how much you hunch over to paint. Thats my only real advice.

Sit back. bring the work to your eyes. Don't bring yourself to the work.

Magnification can assist. Althought I don't use it as often as I should.

I stand for the most part. Only when it comes to details do I settle in.

It has given me an increased reaction time in responding to small explosions throughout the house.

Ibuprofen works for me. I've painted in such a odd position for so many years its become a habit and now I can't hardly paint any other way, so pick a postion thats comfortable and stay with it even its a little more difficult at first, eventually it will become the norm and Ibuprofen won't have to be your best friend too.





Insanity, It is a good pain!

As already said, good back support or posture if you're diciplined enough.

My issues are the hands. They aren't normally so steady so I often clamp my lower palms or wrists together for bracing. It gets... tiring. Eventually sloppy too.

I think I am going to stick with Ibuprofren because if I took even one shot I wouldn't be able to paint which would defeat the purpose! Laughing

I cured that by sitting on the floor with my back against my couch and painting on my coffee table. The tables pretty big so my army, paints and OTT-Light easily fit there. But then I can prop my hands or elbow up on the table and relax while I paint. I haven't had problems with my back or shaking since I started painting this way.

wow, that is a great idea! I never thought of that. I think the next time I paint I will try that. Thank you very much!

Cool! Glad I could help. I also normally have my laptop on the table playing music and of course monitoring my favorite sites. Theres something to be said for having good music playing while you paint.
