Hi all well I got rid of my old pc as it was dying and got this new tablet, I was going through some old cds of photos before binning them and came across our old Garda holiday pictures from years back, I found this one and thought I would like to paint it. Now my eyesight is poor, I was never good at portrait's so may not even attempt that (may just paint myself out of it) what do you think would be the easiest medium oil, water or acrylics please.http://i63.tinypic.com/fp2gwz.jpg

kpnuts ...I think watercolor is one of the hardest mediums out there...I would love to master it, but I pick up the brush and mush comes out.

I've only tried acrylics once, and I think they are much more forgiving and might be a better choice.

I know absolutely zilch about oils. TerryCurley works with oils all the time, plus we now have Steve James that is just brilliant with a paint brush, so one of them might help you decide.
