Night Trees

I’ve been working more with acrylics lately.  I’m not used to the sticky plastic quality of the medium but it is still new to me and I’m enjoying the learning process.  I like the ease with which I can layer colors and still achieve transparency without having to worry about the blooming or lifting that can occur with watercolor.  I also like that I can very easily paint right over something that I don’t like.  One aspect of acrylics that I don’t particularly like is the shininess of the finished product.  I have been using a matte medium with the paint but it still dries very shiny.  It makes it very difficult to photograph.  If anyone has any suggestions for me in this regard I would love to hear them.  I’m using Soho brand from Jerry’s Artarama…maybe there’s a brand that someone can suggest that is less shiny…?
