Analyze the characteristics of different painting media (3 minimum)- the advantages and disadvantages and discuss in examples (100 word min) Oil matting lets the artist create luminous hardwiring colors that blend well with surrounding paints and are slower drying than water colors, but that can also be a disadvantage because it makes it hard to move into the next stage of painting. But Oils and acrylics can contain toxins in some cases. But the acrylics do dry more rapidly, usually within a day or so.
With oil paints that do dry a little slower though, it allows them to be blended easier than the acrylics. With water colors you again have a short drying time. Also an easier clean up and mixing pigment. Some say in the U. S. Though that water color paintings do not get as much aspect as oil paintings. 3.
