Hello today I have got to share an experimental portrait of Greg. I wanted to try how acrylic paints (really thinned with water) will go with watercolor paper. So here it is acrylic paints on A4 watercolor hot pressed paper:

I like it. I never tried acrylic paint thinned with water.. Your colors look great maybe I will give it a try too :)

Thank You, I have to admit that I really enyoyed that technique. And I am glad that you found an idea in my thread :)

Magdalena: It looks great! Acrylics are a good medium to use, since they can be used like watercolors, without the "lifting up" problem when you go back into an area of the painting. Please let's see more :)

Thank You Chammi, while painting this I didn't know what I was doing :) I "went crazy " with colours and technique

A watercolor technique is my favorite way to use acrylics. Now the bug has bitten you too. You're off to a good start! Looking forward to more from you.

Thanks Cindy, I looked at few of your paintings and I really like how you use medium. I experiment with different media, mixed them etc but I don't know why I haven't tried that combination.
