Oils vs. Acrylic
Oil paint... here is the first oil painting I have done in many years. Despite our long time apart, oils were actually my first painting medium. I have fond memories of sitting at my grandma Mackay's kitchen table with her oil paints.
Coming back to the present, I decided to start with water-soluble oils so I wouldn't have to worry about solvents. I'm still on the fence ... oils vs acrylics? Both have pros and cons. So far here is my pro/con list:
Acrylics Pros/Oil Cons
Oils Pros/Acrylic Cons
I plan to continue experimenting with both oils and acrylic and let time help me decide which will be my primary medium. If anyone has any thoughts on the oil vs. acrylic debate... drop me a comment below!
