Winsor & Newton Artisan Water Mixable Fast Drying Medium is a very popular medium as it speeds the drying of oil colour by about 50%, allowing further layers to be applied more quickly. The formulation has been improved and this has helped to wet the colour better. It thins the colour and increases gloss and transparency. When painting in layers it can substitute linseed oil and be combined with water and/or Thinner to maintain fat over lean.

It certainly dries quick, a bit too quick when thin paint is applied on the underpainting and it causes 'drag', or is it the way I paint? It does the job though, but use it sparingly until you get used to it.
Could not do without it
Used this last night for the first time. Overall impression was fine - don't know the drying time yet. The medium is rather thick so does not flow as well as the linseed oil or the standard medium. I chose it as I need to get a painting completed fast will stick to standard medium in general.
