Inspiration through photos, writing, & quotes
Acrylic paint is my favorite type of paint to use. Other than water color, acrylic paint dries the fastest. Acrylic paint sets display much richer colors than water color. In a real set of a acrylics (as opposed to a knock off brand), the color does not fade over time. Oil paints tend to fade and/or become tainted. Another cool thing about acrylic paint is that you can apply it in any thickness you desire. By diluting it with water, you can capture lighter shades, which potentially resemble water colors! Just as well, you can apply thick layers of acrylic paint to show texture. When acrylic paint is wet, it can be easily diluted. However, once dried, the paint becomes water resistant (almost rubber-like), which helps preserve the beauty of your painting. The main reason I favor acrylic paint is because when I make mistakes (which I do pretty frequently), I only have to wait a few minutes, and I am able to paint right over my mistake (without a trace of it’s existence).
