Answer: The purpose of cave art was most likely the ancient peoples way of recording events. It also was probably used for storytelling. As there was no written language when the paintings were done, cave paintings were their way of recording things. It is also believed by scientists that cave paintings were part of a hunting ritual. Ancient people believed that if an animal was painted on the walls, and then they went off to hunt, the animal would come off the wall, creating more game to hunt. As many people point out, the animals are extremely detailed, but the humans seem almost sloppy. This might have been their way of preventing the creation of humans off the walls.
Answer: Well, if mixing the paints is an issue, I have a few suggestions that might help:-If you want the paintings to stop mixing, wait for wet parts to dry before moving on to another section. This way the painting looks almost perfect- You can use a divider. Find them at your local craft store. While painting put this divider to your picture (lightly, barely touching) and paint the part you want to paint. The divider seperates the colors from touching and helps u to continue painting.- You can also try using a dry paint brush. I use this technique all the time. When I am painting and I dont want the red and orange to touch while still wet, I paint the orange and then on the edge of the orange I brush it with a dry paintbrush to suck up all the wetness and then I paint the red. Works like a charm. Try it.
Answer: Pressing a watercolor: To remove wrinkles without damaging a painting, you will need a sponge, water, a large piece of absorbent cardboard, a large piece of plexiglass (available at a glass repair shop) and some weights.
Turn the watercolor paper over on a clean and dry surface. Use a clean, damp sponge to wet the back side of the paper until it is moist, stopping 1/2 inch from each side. turn the painting right side up and place onto cardboard. Cover with plexiglass and press with weights (I use heavy books). Leave for several days or up to a week. The moisture will slowly transfer to the cardboard, and the painting will be flat and ready to frame.
