I've been using Golden Open acrylics for a while now. Love them. They'e completely mixable with regular acrylics and mediums, and increase the drying time the way an extender would, without diluting the color. They stay wet on the canvas and palette for days. I usually combine them with regular Golden colors so I can have a workable painting for a day or so, but one that dries faster than it would with all Open colors. 
As for plein air painting...I've started a number of paintings plein air, but usually finish them up in the studio. I built a couple of painting boxes out of wooden cigar boxes. They mount to a camera tripod with a screw mount. I made them so they hold a small panel or canvas -- up to 9 x 12 or so. They work well and are very portable.

Hi Eva!  That sounds so nice!  I wish I could get away for a weekend but I got a 10 months old who needs his mommy.  Do you and Sharon paint together often?  I may join you if you do.  I'm going to do watercolor sketch at the Columbus Circle this Saturday.  I belong to EHBC Artists Community and we have planned some events including plein air painting/sketching.  So if you're interested, you can visit www.easternhills.org/go/artist.  Looking forward to meeting you some day!

I love plein air painting! It combines 2 of my favorites....being outside and painting! I'm going to the Saranac Lake area next weekend with Sharon Blair from the Art Store for a weekend plain air trip!

John-Open Acrylics...sorry I call them oil because they have all the properties of oils except smell and can be cleaned with water. They are polymer so Golden isn't really producing oils but any paint I can work into weeks after application and that is as creamy...feels like oil to me

Hi Shailesh!  Why don't you join us for plein air painting?  I just started myself but others in the group have been doing it for a while.  It sounds like Adriana has a lot of experience with it as well.  I'm learning as I go along.  So if you're interested, come and join us.  Here is our schedule: http://www.easternhills.org/content.cfm?id=527

You can email Dawn at dhartigan2@mac.com to see if anyone will be painting on site.  (I will be out of town tomorrow, but will be painting next Saturday.)

DEAR MR. FENG. I NEVER DID PLAIN AIR PAINTING. BUT I THINK AND I KNOW THAT AS A LAND SCAPE PAINTER, IT MAKE DIFFERENCE TO PAINT AT THE LOCATION. NOW SEASON FOR PLAIN AIR PAINTING. IF I PAINT SOMETHING ON LOCATION I WILL UPLOAD HERE.

Presently, I'm primarily a jeweler, but I have a past with acrylics, and drawing, a bit of pen and ink.  I like to do landscapes, and hope to experiment with oils someday.

Kit,

Are you referring to the Williamsburg line?  I haven't used them yet myself, but I do know that they actually brought Plansky's mills up to New Berlin to make them.  I never thought I'd live long enough to see Golden put out oils.- John

Is anyone using Golden Oil Paints? I was in one of the test groups and it seemed too good to be true...curious to see how it is working.

WHAT IS FROM HEART THAT IS ART.

THANKS
