This site is exactly what I was looking for when I accidentally wondered to it. I have painted in oils for 30 years then laid my brushes down for 15 (years) when Covid hit I ordered (along with the rest of the world) everything I needed to start back in acrylic. It is definitely a different beast but I am so loving it. Just learning to make and adjust colors is invaluable. I will definitely read more from this site. Thank you so much.
