A murky morning from down the valley. I tried acrylics for this one while I figure out how to paint oil on slippery panel ( the gesso is drying so I’ll try painting oil on it very soon). It was easy to get the misty effect with acrylic paint and I’d love to find out how to do this with oils – more playtime! In comparison to oil, acrylics seem rather flat & lifeless – I know I’m just beginning but can you get texture & life into acrylic paint?
