@Robiscuit personally I used to work in oils a lot and I love how they're both workable for a fairly long time, though gouache is not as friendly to layering as oils imo.
@RATFOOD thank you! Oils are something I've not had much experience in at all, I might try my hand at them again one day!
@Robiscuit they can be daunting but really rewarding 😅 i find the hardest part was brush care, I live in an apartment with two others and no outdoor space so I can't really use them anymore with all the chemicals involved, esp. since I like thinning my paints so that they drip down the canvas
@RATFOOD yeh that's a good shout, I only ever tried oils once as a kid and was shocked that I could just wash my brush with water in the sink! Didn't realise you needed chemicals.
@Robiscuit I've found them to be quite stubborn when it comes to coming out of the brushes which can be annoying, certain chemicals dissolve the paint much easier. The main thing that sucks with cleaning them though is that oils aren't supposed to go down the drain and will clog it if you aren't careful. good thing is the chemicals involved can be reused for a long time before needing to be thrown out.
@RATFOOD ah yeh, I imagine they ain't great for the environment if you chuck em down the sink either. Thanks for the tips! I will keep this in mind the next time I impulse purchase a set of oil paints hahaha.
