I prefer to use Acrylic on heavy weight watercolour paper, I can then make
use of washes at the beginning of the painting and have more texture and
detail at the end. I use both bristle and soft haired brushes and any
other tools that will give the effect, for the leaking lock a toothbrush!
Quite a few of my Acrylics are on Whatman watercolour paper which is a
soft, very absorbent paper that allows many washes but little correction,
it requires 'a 'drier' way of painting' than most people paint watercolour, but Acrylics work fine.
