Check out the Holbein site: http://www.holbeinhk.com/ - click on products and then color lines. There is a page with info about their Duo Aqua Oils.

Check out the Winsor & Newton site for info on their Aqua oils. http://www.winsornewton.com/

Grumbacher had a similar line of water soluable linseed oil paints, recall seeing them demonstrated several years ago and being suitably impressed at the time.

If you try W&N Alkyd oils, you can have your cake and eat it too. They can blend like oils -- they are a kind of oil paint that can be redily mixed with regular oils, but with a really quick drying time. It will dry overnight so you can go over it with glazes the next day, sometimes 4-6 hours later. You will have to work while it is ready, but it can be encouraged to dry slower by the addition of stand oil. Conversly, you can get the quicker drying time by adding Liquin (TM) to regular oils. There are other alternatives to Liquin, like cobalt siccative. Don't discount oils (unless you are selling them retail).
