Yep, must agree. Paint nowadays is a nightmare due to all the regulations regarding VOC. I used to find painting a very pleasant experience, not now. No matter how much you spend on the best paint and brushes, unsightly brush strokes seem to be unavoidable. Water based paint, in my opinion, is an absolute nightmare. Just recently did all the skirtings and door architraves with water based paint, and boy, what a total mess. Spent a full day sanding down, and used Dulux satin oil based paint, and what a difference, still not perfect to my eye, but way much better than the water based stuff.
A couple of years ago my wife and I were thinking of moving, so had a look at a number of show homes, even my wife noticed the brush strokes in the paintwork. On one development the site foreman was actually a painter and decorator to trade, and on discussing this with him, he agreed that getting a perfect finish on paintwork is nigh on impossible if you have a customer with a critical eye.
Anyway, just my tuppence worth.

I've found Armstead quick dry gloss the best water based. It's a trade brand of Dulux.

Does water based paint need to be sprayed on rather than brushed. On many American shows they all seem to use spray gun application.
Oil based covers dry damp stains, water based does not
Duplex trade satinwood oil based every time for me. As others have noted the water based equivalents are really poor in my view

Water based stays white longer but it flakes far too easily and not as durable.

Try water based alkyds. I use all the time.

No it don't. It's because people think they can buy cheap paint and slap on with no preparation. If only they used a deglosser spray to clean it would would help. You won't scratch off when I paint and it's good and white for years. No smell that's unpleasant either. Couldn't give me this oil paint. Terrible stuff now

Armstead is ok for indoors but would recommend an oil based still for outsides

By brush also as long as you ease the paint out and not straight from the tin as you will get thick brush marks

I'd rather have brush stokes visible than an even more damaged planet due to high VOC in paint.

The 2.5 litre is £10.
Have used Johnstone's and Amstead water based gloss and the non yellowing quick drying is brill, but recently used spirit based and the ability to smooth out and the gloss shine also ability to withstand knocks made me realize how good they are.
