Underpainting in acrylic glazes

Looking at the feedback for my new oil painting series, friends have been consistent in liking the underpaintings best. And a recent comment here concerning acrylics and oils made me think again. The only reason I’ve been working in oils over these paintings is because that is what I set out to do. But I notice that these underpaintings have opened a new way of working with acrylics for me. And actually I like adding transparent glazes layer by layer without covering up the scratchy, irregular first layer. This one has two layers so far. I’m going to continue in acrylics for awhile and see what happens.

thanks folks.
