acrylic on paper

I know I said in the past that I really don't like the look of acrylic. I felt like it was too plastic and didn't have the same movement and glow of watercolor. But that was before the acrylic paint making pros decided to try to make acrylic more like watercolor. So a few weeks ago, I decided to give some acrylic paints a try. 
Genesis is my first painting done with these newfangled acrylics.
The acrylics I used are from Chroma Paints and are of the Atelier Free Flow Line. I was amazed at how the paint did flow similar to watercolor when doing wet-in-wet. The paint even stayed wet in my palette for a very long time. The colors have a nice vibrancy to them and layer well.  Overall, I enjoyed painting with them and have ideas to use them even more.
