It is acrylic. I did have a tough time blending especially when I ran out of the good paint and had to use Luiquitex Basics paint to finish. I was wondering what was so special about oils. I hate the fact that acrylic dries so fast, I feel like I have to rush when im painting. Maybe I will give oils a try in the future.
Its actually my brothers dog, its a mixed akita. Me too, I love dogs. I have a mixed Beagle. Hes a great lap dog, he even sleeps under the covers with me at night!
