The 18/0 spotters help me to achieve a nice thin line where I need one under the eyes. Above are the alkyd oil paints I use. The alkyds dry much faster than regular oil paints but much slower than acrylics. I can get a much nicer face using oils because I have all the time I need to get happy with my painting. If I don't like a line, or cheek, I just swipe it off with the 10/0 filbert eraser and start again. The boy face is Gail Wilson's Kate Greenaway style doll before he was antiqued - so he looks a bit "clownish" in his bright face colors. One he was antiqued - it toned it down a bit.
