Types Of Art Paintings – Which One Suits Your Style Of Art?

Many artists today use acrylic paints or watercolors as their medium of painting. Acrylic paint or watercolors come in various types and grades and the grade can determine how thick or thin the paint is and how transparent it is. These paints are less dense than oil paints and are made by adding a certain amount of water or dyes to acrylic paint. In older times, oil paints were more popular since they were thicker and could be applied without any preparation.
