Plein air with Duo Aqua...

I recently bought some Holbein Duo Aqua after checking out some internet reviews - I usually use acrylic but (sometimes) wished for slower drying time outdoors without the hassle of solvent based paint. I had a go on a reasonably warm and breezy day and I love it! I think I may invest in some of their walnut oil for thinning, but with just water it seemed to do the business just fine.
Any tips from other users would be greatly appreciated.

That's excellent, David!

Utilizes the landscape format well! Really like your color choices too.

Re: Plein air with Duo Aqua...

Yes, I've noticed that they seem a bit thick until you add something to them...I've used the quick dry medium. Doesn't really seem to speed up the drying too much, there is still plenty of time to mix them and mess around ;-)
They are a great alternative to regular oils, with no solvents required. Good quality colors, too.
