Hello everyone

I saw the beautiful rose painted in acrylics but with the flemish technique. Has anyone used that technique in acrylics systematicaly, especially for portraits? I would really like to hear other opinions on the subject.

I can't answer for portraits (try asking in the Portrait Forum), but certainly lots of folks use the flemish technique in their work. It's a great way to fully establish your value range, so that when the colour glazes are applied it's really quite easy as the hard work has all been done.

Thanks Marty for the quick reply! Your rose was an inspiration. I'll take your advice and ask the Portrait Forum.
