Why do I like to paint with acrylics? Very simple, it dries quickly.
Acrylics dry quickly which keeps me on my toes, I'm not a methodical thinker I like to make any corrections to the paint on the canvas immediately.
I've disliked oil paint since I was a kid when I painted with oils for the first time. The next morning I checked to see if my painting was dry... it wasn't, it was still wet and I ruined my own painting.
I prefer to have my paintings completely dry in a few days not two months.
Acrylic paint will feel dry to the touch on canvas as soon as 8 hours after painting it depending on the size of the canvas but it may need another week to dry completely before varnishing.
