Thanks Mark for your comment on my water mixable oil painting.  I cannot give you a comparison on regular oils and wm oils, but I think the water mixables are probably a bit stiff compared to the buttery standard oil paints. For this painting I just used water with the paint (no linseed oil) even though I have some.
