I had some struggle trying to determine if I should work further with acrylic but my heart said that it was time to move on to oil.
I almost couldn’t put the brush down this session because describing his right eye in oil was so exciting. The acrylic base is an experiment which I haven’t quite proven yet but it is still very important. The base layer really allows me to focus on the finish of the work rather than establishing basic tones. Yet I still wonder how much the acrylic will help or even show with the end painting.
