Ah yes, excellent reason to try and find a solution …
Having said that: I had invested in professional acrylic paints for I thought I would never be able to paint in oils because of the headaches. Then, a friend of mine came up with the water mixable oils and I just loved them! I thought not long but hard, and concluded that I loved the oils and the techniques I would be able to apply. So I decided to cut my losses and start afresh with the highest grade oils. Initially I used only 8 or 10 colours, so that wasn’t too dear. And I gave part of my acrylic mediums/paints to a friend, who thanked me by buying a few colours in oils. All’s well that ends well 😉
