Hello, My name is Chris Lynch. I've been painting and drawing for over 30 years. I m a disabled
Veteran with MS. I've used acrylics for years, and I am really interested in using water soluble oils. The older I get, the more I want to paint more loosely. I welcome the chance to hear views from other artists.

Welcome Hi Chris. I'm glad you have joined us and took the time to introduce yourself. We are a group of friendly artists who all enjoy using water-soluble oils. We have joined together to share our knowledge, experiences and questions. We help each other wherever help is asked including positive feedback on paintings we post so we can all improve in our quest.

This past year, we expanded the forum to include other media because many of us like to work in all different challenges. You mentioned that you have done acrylics for years and we'd love to see some of your work if you would like to share some in the "Other Media" section.

In the mean time feel free to browse the forum and join in on any discussion that interests you.

Judy

Hi Chris, welcome and if you find the trick to working loosely, please share it! I'd also like to see some of your paintings - I try to work in acrylics and call them my nemesis so any tips you can share about them would also be welcome.

Oh, just saw that you're also from NC, we're in the center of the state about 50 miles from Raleigh.

Hi Ginny, You put your question under someone else's introduction. I did answer you, but here is a copy of the answer:
Quote :
Hi Ginny,

Welcome to the forum. Yes you can use the WM  Oils right out of the tube depending on the brand. The WN Artisans tend to be very thick and respond well to a little thinning with something like Artisan Thinner for early layers in the painting when you want leaner, less oily layers, or very small amounts of walnut oil for later layers when you want them to be "fatter," (more oily.) Other brands such as Copra or Holbein Duo paints tend to be creamier right from the tube and easier to spread. I never recommend using water to thin, especially the Artisans, unless you area doing a large area of thin under painting. Using water to just small amounts of paint tend to make the Artisans more sticky.

Hope that helps. Feel free to ask more  if you need to.

Judy
