Greg DiFranco is one example of a successful acrylic painter with Penny Meter as another exception so I don't know that I agree.  I think there are very talented painters in pretty much any medium.

It has come to my mind that the "old school" of tin figure desingers imagined their figures painted in oil. That's why older figures doesn't very often look good in acrylics.

well done brian  :)  keep going..... you re on the right way i guess. the use of washes is glazing. it is applying of very diluted colours. i use AC for pre-shading or details like nmm or top highlits, not for all figure in because oil colours give more life to the figure  :)

Not bad Brian, Hard to convert to acrylic when w can no longer melt painting like oïl ...
.
I did the reverse, starting with acrylic in 2011 for 18 months, then move to oïl painting !! (with pain !!)

This is my first acry painting in December 2011:

After a lot of nagging had a go at acrylics, I've painted in artist acrylics but this time it's "warpaint" gamming paint.


No idea what I was doing, and kept being told to use washes but how???
so you guy's who use this medium tell me where I'm going wrong  ;)
