Hi I wondered if anyone can help I am using a range of different acrylics and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for good artist quality acrylics that I am able to get from the UK.  I want them to be of high quality. Also I want to move from cotton canvas to linen canvas but am struggling to find anywhere decent to order from if anyone has any suggestions for me I would be hugely greatful.

I don't have any way to know what is available where you are, but I will recommend Golden acrylics products. As for myself I use the newly released open acrylics by Golden. I like them because they have a much longer drying time than traditional acrylics, much closer to oils than any I have used. The quality is very high. Of course that is an opinion, for all that is worth. I think you will find that a lot of professional painters use Golden. Whatever you decide to use, I wish you well. Happy painting.

Both Golden and Winsor Newton acrylics are excellent.

I hope this helps—
