I've been reading and researching like crazy. I have lots of notes ... and many questions. For starters, it seems that I should use the WN Artisan paints to get my feet wet after many years of not painting. I transitioned from traditional oils to acrylics over the years but never really loved using acrylics because they dried too fast for me. I have always loved painting with traditional oils because of the paint consistency. From what I've read here and elsewhere, the WN Artisan brand is of a thicker consistency and more like what I loved about the consistency of traditional oils (thickness, showing the brush strokes, etc.) than the other WSO paints. Am I correct? And, INITIALLY, until I get used to painting with oils again, I want to spend less money on the WSOs so I can get back into painting mode but still make my mistakes. The WN brand is less costly than, for example, the Holbein Duo WSOs. Am I on the right track here? Thanks!!
