and found them workable, but not terribly brushable without medium. The WNs also have an odor about them I don't care for. So it was, with a bit of trepidation, that I purchased Cobra water miscible oils by Talens - the folks who make Rembrandt paint (a line I like a lot and use to supplement my Vasari, Old Holland and Michael Harding paints).
The Cobra oils are GREAT! Out of the tube every color I purchased (about a dozen) was buttery, highly brushable, and had good pigment density. What makes them great for painting on location is the water cleanup . . . it's not perfect . . . I always wash my brushes when I get home . . . but it makes working on location so much more effortless than working with standard oils and solvents in the wild.
I also use them on Thursday evenings for my life drawing group. Again, the lack of odor and simple cleanup make these a terrific alternative to traditional oils.
This site is both the chronicle of my recent sabbatical - the theme of which was "a sense of place" and my ongoing work in life after sabbatical. I try to share thoughts and insights about my work and the practice of painting that others will find useful and applicable to their own work. I hope you enjoy your visit!
