Oil and Acrylic Paintings

I paint in both oils and acrylics. What’s the difference? Oils take a lot longer than acrylics. I like to paint in layers and as oil paint takes a lot longer to dry than acrylic paint, cheapest viagra anywhere an oil painting takes longer to complete, about 6-8 weeks is usual but with more complex pieces it can be 3 or 4 months. Acrylics dry a lot faster so a painting can be completed in 2 to 4 weeks. Oils and acrylic paintings can be painted on stretched canvas or board.

Stretched canvas
It’s a gallery wrapped canvas with painted sides and the generic viagra forum staples are on the back of the painting so the canvas can be hung on the wall framed or unframed.

Board
A painting on board is nice and rigid and a bit more robust than a painting on canvas which makes it ideal for shipping. Board paintings will need a frame.
