Oil vs. Acrylic

I work with both Oil and Acrylic paints. The main difference between the two is drying time. Acrylic paint dries very quickly - I can work faster, but the blending isn’t as subtle as an oil painting.

Oil paints dry much slower. They are easier to blend, and in my opinion result in a richer, more vibrant color. That being said, oil paintings take longer to complete.
