If you love the feel of oil paints but get frustrated with the drying time between layers, alkyd oil paint might be the solution for you. Made with a synthetic resin as the binder, it is a durable paint that reaches the touch-dry stage much more quickly than oils do; you can often return to your work the day after you put down your first layer. This makes alkyds well suited for plein air work as well. Once you try them and see how they allow you to maintain momentum, you just might never go back to the traditional stuff.
