I can't wait to put in an order for the Geneva oil paints. I have always used student paints and decided that it was time to upgrade. However, my main objective with buying the Geneva oil paints is not just the high pigment load, but the leveling surface which I often have trouble with... I always end up having too much glare because i use non-leveling paint. Even though I add linseed oil and turp... some how the glare is blinding... I have so much medium and student grade paint by Winsor... does anyone out there know how I can create that same leveling effect with my student grade paints. Also, does the high pigment load really show? I saw many videos online that state it doesn't make much of a difference and instead if you are on a budget you should invest most of your money in a good linen canvas. Thanks!
