Acrylics vs. Oils

I now have two set ups for painting in my studio. 
One for oils and one for acrylics. 

I'm discovering that acrylics are more suitable for 
the layering approach I'm experiementing with.  

Pink Chairs
8 x 8 acrylic 

You don't have to wait in between layers 
and you can keep on working 
without causing "mud."
It's very forgiving. 

That said, 
I still love the thick juicy strokes 
you can get with oils.  

I'm painting over old paintings, 
and have to be sure I only use oil
 over an old oil painting. 
Using acrylics over oils is never a good idea!
