I'm almost ready to take the plunge to purchase some Geneva Oil Paints, however, I am more familiar at the moment using Griffin Alkyd (Fast drying) oil paints where quite often I use with Liquin (original and impasto) so I can get the texture I like. As well as texture, Griffin Alkyd paints dry faster which enables me to add more layers without waiting however long before I can return to the painting. I also like to include texture in my paintings and wonder how GOP handle textures without using Liquin?
To further explain this - I am certainly no Constable (only been painting for a year or so), but he is one of my favourite artists and I love the cross between the detail and the subtle abstract he applies to his paintings. I am really wondering if GOP work well with styles such as Constable? I realise Constables style is perhaps quite different to Marks (no blending/layers/ - or at least I assume Constable painted in layers??) but since I have never really used slow drying oil paints which are already a certain consistence, does this limit the style of painting you can do??
Sorry for the long post and thanks for reading.
(I forgot to add an image of Constables to try and explain what I mean re: texture etc)
