I love to paint with acrylics. I have tried watercolors and I am not great at blending. I have tried oils and I admit I don't have the patience to wait for them to dry. So I love acrylics. They are quick drying, colorful and forgiving...you can paint right over your mistakes (of which I make many!)

I recently came across a great website where an acrylic artist by the name of Sandra Sheetz has a free video you can watch which gives you a few lessons on painting with acrylics. I found it very helpful and insightful so if you are new to painting with acrylics I would check it out. Painting with Acrylics video.

Below is one of my few attempts at oils. I find it easier to paint abstracts with oils as you can blend and create wonderful color and not have to worry about each color drying beforehand. However, I think I will stick with my acrylics. This piece is for sale and is gorgeous in person. My camera needs replaced!!!
