Oil or Acrylic? It’s an age old question and one I’ve struggled with for a while.
As a general rule, and admittedly what swayed me for many years, is that acrylics are cheaper and more affordable than oils. At that rather shallow analysis in my equally shallow youth, I left it at that and for years I painted with acrylics. That’s not a terrible thing by the way, I love acrylics – but I’ve often wondered whether I’m missing out.
