Acrylic's versus oilpaint by Raipun Acrylic's versus oilpaint by Raipun
To those who were wondering if the oils would add some refinement, YESSS! It always does!!!
On the left, Acryl paint, on the right, oil paint.

These two stages are on the same painting! I always start with a solid acryl base and then add oils.

hello I was wondering if you could kindly paint a portrait of my brother?

Oh my! The acrylic looked very realistic, with the oil, it jumps out of the canvas (and out of the monitor too!). :)

I'm using oil for 2 months now and I should have tried it a way before. Contrasts and rich colors are easier to achieve with oil at my opinion. This is an awesome portrait you've done here! I like the expression. Good job.

I know these are just for comparison, but I can't get Andy Warhol out of my head.

Ever wonder if he would have been as famous, if he had lived?

Great work, as always.

Andy Warhol WAS famous while he lived.

You're even more confused than you think; I was referring to James Dean.  :)

To be fair, saying "he" just after making a comment about Andy Warhol without naming James Dean anywhere would confuse anyone.

But I am perpetually confused anyway.

Actually, I was operating on the belief that she [at least] was aware that James Dean had died prematurely, in an automobile accident, after only making 3 movies.  You know, because she's old enough.  While Andy Warhol, on the other hand lived a long and productive life, finding fame way to hell and gone, back in the late 60s.  So, to my way of thinking, it sorta went without actual saying that I would not be discussing Andy.

I will endeavor to do better in the future, however.

I prefer acrylic one. It has more of the artist, when the oils just make it like a photo.

Wow! I think the oil painting has many more dimensions than the acrylic. To me, the acrylic falls flat, although colorful.

Lovely job as always.Love

I like the detail in the oil but prefer the colorful acrylic version.

That's interesting that you would start with an acrylic base. Is that to just lay down color and tone more quickly?

I admire your patience. To me, the acrylic paint is already a work of art but you... you go for perfection. You're awesome!

I see the difference. Oil paint is a lot more darker in it's shade and it's much more realistic in comparison to the acrylic. Looks kinda like a photo.

looks great, but is that because you refine it or are you referring to some special property that oil inherently has?

Are these two separate pieces, or two stages of the same piece? Gorgeous work!
