But. . . now, after all this time, I'm rediscovering the delights of oil painting again: the greater richness and depth of colours that don't change in the light, crisper, cleaner highlights, the buttery paint texture that I enjoy mixing and moving on the canvas. Also, if desired, one can work in acrylic as an 'under foundation' to establish tones, and put oils on top (never the other way round though) - so . . goodbye acrylic, hello oils. And in a big way, too - my Swans in Calm Waters
is really big (nearly bigger than me): 4' high x 3' wide.
