The Difference Between Acrylic And Oil Painting

If you are new to art, or perhaps have found yourself with the time to take up a new hobby, then you will soon find that the world of painting is probably more diverse and wide-ranging than you might have imagined!

On first starting out, you have to decide which kind of painting you would like to experiment with, and for many people, this usually comes down to a choice between acrylic and oil.

Here at the Sunshine Coast Art And Framing Gallery, we like to think of ourselves as a one stop shop for art supplies on the Sunshine Coast as well as being a wealth of art-based knowledge and advice, so allow us to help you out with working out which style might be best for you to try. Here are some of the key differences between acrylic and oil painting.

Come to us for your art supplies on the Sunshine Coast and you’ll be able to choose between quality oil paints and quality acrylics. When your artwork is complete, come back to us here at Sunshine Coast Art & Framing Gallery to provide that important finishing touch to your painting. Call us anytime. We look forward to hearing from you!
