A few years ago I tried a painting with oils (the first since high school) and liked it so much that I began painting pretty much ONLY with oils with a watercolor thrown in for the hell of it. Today I started a painting of my step-granddaughter and decided to use acrylics. I used NEVER to paint with oils and ONLY painted in acrylics, but it’s been more than 20 years. I liked it! Even though the paints I have right now are old and not great quality, and did not feel as good as oils, it was still a really positive experience. The painting’s not done, but I think I like it fine, so far! It’s 8 x 10 The colors are off because I took the photo against the light.
