Why Acrylic?

Why Acrylic Painting?

My painting medium of choice is acrylic.

The fast drying properties of acrylic are challenging, but I love the crispness and spontaneity of color. Oils dry too slowly for me and can easily be overworked or muddied. Watercolor is too unforgiving a medium for me. I like to be able to work and rework an area until I have the effect I want.

While there are many acrylic paint choices, I prefer Liquitex, Winsor & Newton, and Grumbacher tubes.
