Creative Coloring in Portraits

Acrylic on Paper, 16x20," c. Catherine Vines
This is a friend from the Seattle area. Josey is a painter in her own right and well as a genius at selecting matting and framing to best portray a painting. 
While the painting looks like her, it fails to show her lovely smile.
I wonder why I am so much more creative with colors when I am using acrylics. I love the feel (and even smell) of oil paints, but would like to expand my color range within a painting.
Practice. Practice. Practice.
