This is my fist painting in acrylics. They had some good points and some frusting points. The good - dries quickly so could readily fix something or add another color on top of it. The frusterating part? Well the colors don't come out of the tube the same colors as oils paints. Like the burnt umber is much lighter in the tube. It took a while for me to see that they dry a bit darker. All of them seam to. I was able to use glazes much the same as in oils so that was nice. Finished an entire painting in one day so that was nice as well.
