I think this combination is better than using an acrylic primer. I like a good old fashioned oil base primer for its penetrating ability, it can also be thinned to improve this. A really good acrylic top coat can stretch with the wood, is breathable and more UV resistant than a oil base paint.

A good combination all around.
