Are you using the best paint for your style?

In this video and blog post I'm talking about the most popular types of paint. If you have looked at art online and seen an artist use acrylics or oils and thought "What's the real difference? I wonder why the artist chose to use that?" Then this info should be very helpful! The painting media I include are: Acrylics - water based, quick dry time, can be mixed with a huge variety of acrylic mediums to change the paint's consistency, opacity, drying time, texture, finish, etc. Can be thinned with water but only to a max of 30%.

"Swirling Water" A new time lapse painting video

Forward progress! I just got back from taking my family on a summer vacation to Treasure Lake in Georgia.
