Day 143: new things

Two Christmases ago my mom got me some Golden brand Open Acrylics. These are water soluble acrylic paints that dry slowly, like oils. I figured the under painting for this siren portrait was a good chance to test them out. It is recommended that you mix them with normal acrylics to make for a medium rather than very long drying time. What did I find? They definitely dry more slowly. There are some fun things yu can do, but I haven't figured them out just yet. Either way, here is what I made so far.
