Do oil paintings really have more "depth" than acrylic paintings like I've heard?
In my humble opinion, each medium has the potential to create a captivating piece. Watercolor is very forgiving and numerous techniques are at your disposal to manifest the finest details of a landscape. Acrylics have more depth in regards to color and they dry quickly. This enables the artist to effectively layer the paint and make errors less noticeable. Oil paints require a more delicate approach; they dry slowly and have an entirely different array of chemical properties then water based paints. This contributes to blending abilities that are unparalleled. Thus, when compared to acrylic and watercolor paintings, the oil based painting will appear more captivating.
