I love to paint with oils for the complete opposite reason that I love to paint in watercolours. Oils are a classical medium, they reflect tradition. I love their characteristics, the creamy texture of the paint and the beautiful colors I can achieve because the intensity of their pigments. They are user friendly, their opacity allows for coverage if correction is required. I love the fact that they take a long time to dry because during the drying time the paint takes on another element of challenge, I can continue to work the paint without worrying about the drying factor.
