Winsor & Newton Griffin Alkyd Fast Drying Oil Colours are genuine oil paints made from high quality pigments and oil modified alkyd resin. They can be thinned with conventional solvents.
The unique formulation of the Winsor & Newton Griffin Alkyd Fast Drying Oil Colours allows for a shorter drying time than most oil paints. The paints remain moist and workable for 6-8 hours, and then dry overnight into a particularly hard paint layer. Griffin Alkyd dry with a uniform gloss which will neither crack nor crumble. These paints can be mixed with conventional oil colors and you can use exactly the same supports, brushes and mediums that you would normally use for oils.
The Winsor & Newton Griffin Alkyd Fast Drying Oil Colour range offers a wide choice of transparent and opaque colours.

Pure Alkyd for the under painting and the above for over painting, complies with fat over lean. Works for me every time.
It's probably better to use in the winter because of the quick drying qualities in a cold climate but I find it dries a bit too quick in the summer for my speed of painting!
