Hello I am new to WSO , so new in fact I have yet to open my new tubes and start working. I've been painting just over 3 years (self taught) using acrylics and a little oil. I love to use both for some types of paintings but am very excited to start with this new and improved medium. Looking forward to exchanging ideas and information with everyone. I hail from western Canada.

Welcome to the forum. We are happy you have joined us. Many of us are self-taught and have used a variety of media. I like the fact that I can use my acrylics for under layers of my painting and then once completely dry can paint more detailed upper layers with the water-soluble oils.

Be sure to explore the many topics throughout the forum and feel free to ask questions.

I look forward to seeing you around the forum.

Judy

Welcome, Gknee! What brand of WMO's did you buy? Just curious.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

Judy I do have a question (hope it's okay to ask here). You have mentioned that you apply a thin layer of oil over the entire canvas surface on top of an acrylic base before you begin a painting with WSO. Are you refering to a thin layer of WSO or a walnut oil?

Chryatal1 I got Cobra paints. My studio or rather my postage stamp size painting space doesn't allow for the fumes of regular oils.

It can be either but I prefer the walnut oil only because the WSO linseed oil bother my allergies.

I really like the creaminess of the Cobras but I also use Holbein Duo a lot and have been trying to use up all the W/N paints I originally started with.

Welcome to the Forum GKnee. One of our members: WaterMixableGuy, recently used the Cobra and loves it, maybe you can ask him for some tips as well.

ftarigtx I'm about to start my first painting using WSO and I will no doubt need some pointers. Thanks for the suggestion.

Hi Gnee, welcome to the forum. I am in Atlantic Canada, so only a several thousand kms away from you! I am enjoying Cobra paints these days. I bought a few tubes, and have found quite a difference from the Winsor Newton Artisan paints I was using.

Thanks watermixableguy. You live in one of my favourite provinces! Have spent plenty of time in the Maritimes (New Brunswick) and it is a painters paradise.
Started my first painting today with Cobra and so far I'm impressed. Looking forward to exchanging info and ideas.
