If that's the paint you used in the painting I bought for my husband (Centenary) it's beautiful. Not at all "flat". It's rich. Did you varnish it?

Hi e, I use Winsor and Newton Artisan water mixable oils and am very pleased with them. I think they have body and good colour but I must say I have very little experience of traditional oils so I don't have anything to compare them with really except acrylics.

Hey Sheila. Which brand? I tried a set once and the effect was so flat + muddied I went back to oil...Part of my problem this time, tho, is I used turps...usually I have another more health conscious thinner made from lemons...I ran out + used turpentine + I was working on 2 huge other paintings at same time + it just got too much for me.

Agree with wh - strong harmonising colour, beautiful. Worth the headache I would think (By the way I use water mixable oils - no fumes).

Masterful use of colour.
