You're a master with paint!!
And... how do you execute watercolor and oil?? Confused...
I comprehend watercolor and acrylics can work, but i didn't know oil and watercolor/acrylics were possible lol

well watercolor and acrylics dry almost instantly... so you can just paint on top of them with oil. Many painters use acrylics to cover the big areas and then oil for the detailing! You can't directly mix them, really, because one mixes with water and the other with oil (dur), but you can layer them. If you really wanted to do acrylic on top of oils it's possible too, you'd just have to wait a while for the oils to dry!

Oh, i see. It is a good idea to use acrylics for big areas i.e. underpainting! I should try that from now yayy
Yes, i obviously knew oil and water-based paints aren't miscible lolol
Thank you for the tips! You're awesome :D:D
Your painting is truly striking. May i ask how large the canvas is?
Looks pretty huge to me lol

The other good thing about acrylics is that you can buy really unnatural neon-esque colors that are way too expensive to buy in oil!

they're not that huge... I guess they're close to 22x30? It's a pretty arbitrary size decision influenced by the difference between the paper I bought and the masonite it's mounted on. I had to settle for the masonite's size (it was the smaller), but it was proportionally way too long so I eyeballed a measurement and cut it down to a shorter rectangle. So I ended up with some really non-standard measurement...
