Playing 10X10 Oil on Archival Panel  SOLD
 Ready to Frame

In checking the Artisan website for water mixable oils it said it was OK to paint oil on top of acrylic.

So, I picked up a panel that I had painted and posted Sept 22nd of this year.  It was bright and colorful but the acrylic didn't have depth. With palette knife in hand I tackled it and this is the result.
I like the texture and depth of the oils and some of the acrylic color is showing through.  I used a paste that makes the oil very transparent so in a few areas it has only a slight skim of paint over the acrylic to create the new color.

I think it works.  What do you think?
