At the start of a Traditional oil painting the Zest-it Lean Painting Medium is ideal to lay in the under-painting or foundation. It is a light thin medium with more solvent then oil and gives an excellent 'key' to further painting.

The under-painting is often done with oil paint thinned with solvent only, this can sometimes fail due to the excessive use of solvent to thin the paint.
The Lean Painting Medium saves that happening keeping the oil paint from becoming 'under-bound', following the 'fat over lean' principle and building a strong foundation for further work

Lean Painting Medium has a thin viscosity and a small amount goes a long way. Thin the desired oil paint as think as ink, probably Burnt Umber for speed of drying, sketch in the design and allow to dry.
