Shades of Gray

The things I love about acrylics is that they dry quickly, meaning I can paint for long periods of time.

The thing I DON’T love about acrylics is that they dry quickly. When doing blending, I have to work fast before the paint dries and get all the shading done as fast as possible. Otherwise, I have to mix the colors and do my best to match what has already dried. It’s a pain, and pretty much a "get it right the first time" proposition. So, the work continues...

this is going to sound really weird, but if you add in some clear hair gel it prolongs the drying. Just enough to do what you need to do ;)
