I`ve noticed that there is still a bit of a snobbery about OIL. `It has to be oil.` ` Oh! You really should paint in oil` Well after many years painting in both mediums I can tell you that it is just that. `Snobbery`. They are both fantastic mediums and both rather different. I love acrylic because of the crisp colours and speed of drying and oil because of it`s rich visably pleasing appearance on the canvas. It`s good painting in both. I can switch from one to the other. And I can tell you Acrylic just surprizes me all the time and stands up proud against it`s old time rival.
