Acrylic Portrait tips and techniques?

I am a realistic acrylic painter and pen and ink artist who gets caught up in fine detail, mostly landscapes and such, but am trying something to new - a portrait in acrylics. Any tips and techniques from any of you who portraits in acrylics? Most of what I have been finding has been tip and techniques of doing them in oil. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Mary

Re: Acrylic Portrait tips and techniques?

Welcome to the site Mary

Have you checked out threads in the Portrait forum? There may well be portraits done in acrylics there.

Also, if you are a realistic painter, employ the same techniques for the portrait - they should apply!

Check out threads by ianart - he's done some realistic portraits recently. Also look at the work of rmc - Ruth used to do portraits quite often.

If you read this thread of our Self Portrait challenge, 2010 you'll see lots of different styles!!!
