Oils and Medium....

I'm often asked what oil paints I prefer to use by some of my students and I know I'm repeating myself, but I'm still using Gamblin.  I think once you trust a product, you really try to stick with it.  I still use Liquin a lot in the field.  The regular "Original Liquin".  I also like using my own mixture of Gamblin linseed oil and Gamsol for an oil painting medium in the studio.  50/50 ratio. 
 
 
Now this little painting was done on stretched canvas, but when I paint outside in smaller formats, I prefer to paint on board.  Mostly because my pochade box moves a bit on my tripod and so does the canvas.  Board is much stiffer and gives me more control outside.
