    I can’t find the 50% gray Basics acrylic paint to coat the back of the glass palette — would that be the same as Basics Neutral Gray No. 5? https://www.liquitex.com/us/products/basics/range/colors/

    I don’t have the opportunity to use solvents, will it work if I use linseed oil to thin paints? Will it make my work very fat early and how does it affect when painting portraits?

    Hi

    I am not damn good with drawing but i know Andrew loomis method and rielly method and i can draw portrait in any angle and i hv tried painting as well but the problem with me is underpainting i mean how to draw accurately in painting and second mixing the right colour … When ever i finish portrait painting its looks like a bit out of proportion and not getting the desire likeness of the subject… And it takes lots of time to finish even small size painting and drain out all the fun .

    So is this course will be helpful or i should take another course before this one .. please help

    Hi, is there a big difference between acrylic brushes and oil brushes? Is it necessary to buy oil brushes to get the same effect?

    Hi Jill, my understanding is that oil brushes are designed to hold up against terpenoids while acrylic brushes are designed to work with water.
    I know some artists that use acrylic brushes for oil, but they tend to fall apart, and you get bristles in the paint.
    So yes you can use acrylic brushes, but its not recommended, especially for prolonged painting periods
