Thank you Nolan and njnjgirl, it surely does not look so good, as it is coming together. though. So important to not give up.  :sweat:  I had an easier time adding the contrasts with glazes since I had to restart several times.

Hi Nolan, I am wondering what I am doing wrong.
 I have bought atelier paints so I would have good quality paints BUT I still have a problem of paint lifting. I am painting the black collie dog on acrylic paper.
When you paint your paint stays dark and no problems using the side of the filbert. When I do it I get nearly grey strokes not the dark Paynes grey colour. I have tried this with thick paint and thin paint.
 I have tried painting gently and normally but it makes no difference.
To get it dark I have to use the full wide of the flat brush.
Even when I dry the paint with the hair-dryer, it still tends to lift off when I try to paint with new paint.
I don't have this problem at the time I need to use the rigger brush.
VERY FRUSTRATING
It's a cold drizzly day here if that makes a difference.
