    On small canvases fast drying is a good thing; not always so  on large ones.

    On a large surface you can often just leave one area to dry while you work on another. But really, I think lots of it is just personnel preference... I started in oils (about 60 years ago!) and I love the buttery feel and the smell of turpentine and the way oils blend.

    And I like pencil and charcoal and pastels and ink too!

    Thank you for this fine diary, boran2.

      I can certainly see where it would be helpful on a larger surface.  I've been working with acrylics for more than 30 years.  It would be too hard to change now.  ;-)
