How To Choose The Best Frame

It is crucial to select a frame that fits the theme of your painting. It should not be too rustic nor too ornate depending on the subject of the painting itself. Certainly, the framing and your art should feel together “as one”. Therefore, the choice of frame very much depends on the theme of your paintings. And this contributes to the importance of framing them.

For instance, if you painted a landscape of a countryside, a wooden frame will accentuate its rustic feel. If your painting has a white background, then a white simplistic frame will be more suitable. Because the frame will complement the tones of the background wonderfully whilst contrasting effectively with the subject in the middle.
