Acrylics as watercolors

Meadow Afternoon
I found this scene one summer afternoon over a year ago but I never felt I could paint it before. One thing transparent water media are great for is skies.

The first painting instruction I ever had was in watercolor, and I guess some of that experience has stuck with me, because I enjoy painting on paper as if I were painting with watercolors. I do love my acrylics, though, and I'm in no hurry to go back. I love that they're so versatile.
