Creating with acrylic paint is a fast way to learn about color and develop your style. This type of paint dries quickly and has as much vibrancy as oil.
Keep a small container of water near by for your brushes to remain wet at all times. There are many different types of acrylic paints available at most craft or art supply shops. Test out your skills and invest in a small set, use heavy paper around 90 to 100 pounds in weight.
Your painting is an expression of your own creative self. Let go and allow the colors to flow off your brush, see where it takes you and discover the beauty of painting with acrylic paint.
There is no right or wrong way to paint, you only need to try it out, apply some paint to your brush and let the colors explode onto the paper. This is enjoyable and fun to do.
These paintings displayed in this article were all created with the use of acrylic paint. As you can see the colors are very similar to that of oil paint. I found that allowing the layers of color to dry before adding another had a very nice effect.
