Water-based oils

8" x 10" oil (NFS)

I bought some water based oils since my art
supplies were packed away during our move and
did a practice painting of Tidor's Nagley painting
to see how the water based oils worked and study
Nagley's style. They clean up nice with just water,
but they do not have the nice buttery feel while
painting. For sketching or plein air painting,
they would work well. Drying time is about the
same as regular oils.

Been busy with family and moving to another state.
Finally settled and now I have time to paint again.
