Hi Johan,

Here is a link to the acrylics forum at Wetcanvas, you might find some good information there. Sorry I can't help with the comparison to watercolors myself, since I don't use watercolors. I think there is an article by Nicolas Simmons on Wetcanvas about using acrylics like watercolors though.

Hi Johan. Our "outdoor painting from life" forum is called Plein Air, and you can find it here:

There are some fine acrylic painters who do landscapes from life and post to that forum. Feel free to share your work there anytime!

If you have any non-landscape work that you've done from life (not from a photo), please do share with us here by starting a new thread and uploading images of your paintings.
