How about "how to paint oil with acrilic "  it is one of the first courses on the list of the acrilic lesson.   It is the couple looking at the see and there is a light post.  There is also one in oil that you could do in acrilic it is the pot of flowers in the doorway (impressionistic).  Also flowers in the meadow (oil). Hope that answers your question.

Wouldn't any palette knife lesson work as long as a medium is added to acrylics so they can be worked impasto?

Also: Autumn Walk.  Oil or acrylic, it is the same technique.  Only drying time differs.... a lot 😆

Nolan did promise us a lesson in pallette knife in acrylic ::) :) ..still waiting dear Nolan!


Haven't done flowers in the meadow...so I can't comment...but did attempt the flower pot in the doorway..and really enjoyed doing the flowers impasto effect.Maybe you can just do the flower pot....that's the part where pallette knife was used.
However for rest of the painting..you need to be little more familiar with using acrylic to do the painting.
I had observed a few points and wanted write a topic on that.however I felt I should do couple of more lesson of oil in acrylic before I could safely point out the differences.
The one point that comes to mind straight away is the bottom edge of doorway..where paint is peeling off..you can just rub off the paint in oil to show the effect of old door...in acrylic you can't do that!
Maybe Steve is right if it is pure pallette knife lesson you can apply that in acrylic or oil!
