Acrylic Artwork – A Vivid and Inspiring Medium
Acrylic painting is a relatively new medium, developed in the mid-20th century as an alternative to oil paints. It has quickly gained popularity among artists for its fast-drying properties, versatility, and ability to be used on various surfaces including canvas, paper, wood and even fabric.
The characteristic that makes acrylic paints unique compared to oil paints is that it is water-based. As water-based paints, acrylics are generally more flexible and less prone to cracking than oil paint over time. Additionally, acrylic paint can be thinned with water or thickened, allowing artists to create intense colours without the paint becoming too thick or difficult to use. This feature, when skillfully applied, enables the artist to create vibrant acrylic hues that leap off the canvas and grab your attention, drawing you deeper into the piece.

We have made our diverse virtual gallery a home for art from various mediums, including acrylics, oil paint, lithographs, and more.
