I prefer oil medium to acrylic. Oil paints give me more flexibility to mix the colors on the canvas and create smoother transition between colors. However, I have a bad habit of mixing colors too much and create muddy colors. So whenever I like to maintain the clear and crisp color I usually use acrylic paint. But the downside of using acrylic paint is painting becomes very tight. I am going to paint this image again with oil and see what will happen.
