ady need an extra 10 hours in my day... but I keep seeing so many amazing artist's work lately using oils that I just could not resist any longer.
So I compared all the options (genesis heat set oils, water miscible oils, regular oils) and decided to go with Gamblin oil paints as they seem very high quality & the company seems very into creating great products with the least amount of toxicity.
After surfing for 3 days straight, I also discovered that many artists use just linseed or walnut oil and odourless mineral spirits (still toxic but very minimal in a well ventilated studio) in their paintings. So no reason not to jump in and give them a try...right? I did not need all the mediums but thought why not try them out & see if I like them as they also seemed pretty low in toxicity & I love the bottles! In hindsight I should have just jumped in and bought more paint as well as I thought with the two colors I could just do a few monochromatic studies but after playing for an hour I found myself really wanting to be able to mix some real darks. Oh well, another trip to the art store, heh heh :)
