Oil Paint without Solvents

Over the years I have learned some techniques for painting with oil paints without using solvents.  I really like the working quality of oil paints, but just don't want to handle solvents.

Clean your brushes with a mixture of one half Murphy Oil and one half water.  This even works to rescue brushes that have dried paint.  I find this to be a better cleaner than mineral spirits and much more friendly to the environment.  It cleans your hands as well.

I cover my palate with waxed paper so that I don't have any clean up at the end of the day.
This is a link to my video showing how I use oil paints without solvents.
