Painting with oils over acrylics

Is it okay to paint with oils over acrylics?

Yes! I’ve done it many times.

That’s my answer and I’m sticking to it.

But I wanted to find out a more complete explanation to share, so I googled the question yesterday, and here’s the best, clearest, most concise and complete answer I found, at ACRYLIC PAINT REVIEW.

By the way, my favorite quote from this article is this one concerning doing it the other way around, and trying to paint with acrylics over oils:

“Never, ever, ever, in a million, zillion years should you paint acrylic paint on top of oil paint.”

So there.
