How to handle the colours

Bloom, acrylic on paper, 10x6in. (25cmx15cm). Watercolour techniques, like glazing and mixing colour on the paper, are all possible with acrylics, the only difference being the dry result cannot be revived by adding water.
Atlantic, acrylic on canvas, 39x39in. (100x100cm). Acrylics can be used with thickly applied strokes that dry quick enough to add thin glazes over the top.
