I've been painting with oils for a good long time now, and love their buttery quality and the true colour that stays the same when dry as when you make the mark. These qualities are the main two reasons I love working with oils.
What I dont love is the toxicity! My studio doesn't get the best ventilation. (there are 2 small windows but if it's freezing out or pouring rain having them open all the time isn't ideal) After a couple of hours of oil painting I notice the air quality isn't great, and I always take a break at these times. A slight headache/watery eyes can be symptoms too.
