Acrylic & Oils

Working with buttery Oils or vibrant and fast drying Acrylics is a choice I tend to make according to the weather. I use oils in the summer months more frequently as I prefer to use them outside, acrylics on the other hand, have become a favourite as they are useful for their versatility being fast drying when working within a time limit.
My colour palette remains more or less the same whether I’m working in acrylics, oils or watercolours, with few variations. I usually sketch in watercolour first adding markers and inks, pencils or charcoal to get a feel for the subject before applying the heavier paint. Acrylics, Gouache, inks and pastels find their way into many of my finishes pieces.
Knowing when a piece is finished is the challenge for all artists,
so I try to stop just before the end....whenever that is!
