trying a bit more painting, and find it a little more difficult using acrylics than using oils. I want the same glazes and paint effects that i can get with oils, but am failing.
I really should try and use the waterbased oilpaint, but it comes in such small tubes it would prove very expensive.
I shall keep trying with the acrylics, the challenges of the medium is half of what painting/creating is all about....for me anyway.

have you tried different sorts of acrylics ... some of them come closer to being oil like than others .... though i haven't used oils in years and years!
