"Beautiful Diane. My sister-in-law has peacocks on her farm. I get feathers in August when they shed them. She has an albino peacock! I will see if I can get a picture of it next time I am there. They don't look as glamorous as yours though.…"

Welcome Janet!  One has to think a bit differently when going from oils to acrylics, for sure.

The fast dry time is a huge benefit in many circumstances; it allows faster cover up of problem areas, almost no scraping!, and much easier layering.  Not to mention no solvents and almost no odor!

Golden (and others) do have a slower drying Open line that provide more time to fiddle.  I tried them but came back to the regular acrylics, even for plein air.  The slower drying lines are not recommended for thicker paint application, and their habit of opening up and mixing with subsequent layers can drive one nuts.

Again, Welcome!
