umm, let see if i can remember...

firstly try use good paints , they have stronger pigment(so you use less paint, tint less easilly, carry colour well, dont fade to fast, take longer when mixing colours to go brown and muddy, just have a richer feel.

i used/use winsor and newton griffen alkyd fast drying oils. stunning paint.

use a fast drying medium or dilute them with artist white spirits to lay out your first layers of colour on the canvas, much like blocking in, then once dry lay down heaviers layer and so on

hope thats enough help

Life is to short to be doing something you dont enjoy
