AQYLA Giveaway! {waterbased alkyd-resin paint)

Hi friends! I wanted to let you know that you KUSAKABE Enogu is giving away a set of AQYLA paint just in time for the holidays! Watch how artists are inspired by Aqyla all over the world and follow the directions at the end of the video to enter! All of the links can be found on the YouTube watch page of their video. You must follow the directions on the video to qualify and this giveaway is open internationally!

Here are a couple of examples I painted with Aqyla. I love that this paint can be used like oils, acrylics, watercolor or gouache. It has more open time than acrylics but dries quicker than oils and is pigmented enough to thin down and use as watercolors. The paint also contains tried and true pigments so there is little worry about fading down the road.
