Oil Painting

Oil painting is the process of oil paintings for sale with tones that are bound with a medium of drying out oil? especially in early modern Europe, linseed oil. Often an oil such as linseed was boiled with a resin such as pinus radiata resin or even frankincense; we were holding called 'varnishes' and were revered for their body and gloss. Other oils occasionally used include poppyseed oil, walnut oil, and safflower oil. These oils confer various properties to the oil paint, such as less yellowing or different drying out times.

As with most products, there is usually a large selection to choose from and invariably you are unsure of quite where to start, and this is very the case when choosing an oil painting.

Think of practically any object under the sun and there will be an oil painting of it somewhere.

You can even get an oil painting of an oil painting; some artists will reproduce an oil painting of an old master. That's certainly a much cheaper option than buying an original!

I've actually had quite a few produced like this, including several old masters by famous artists that i particularly liked and one or two of works of art by not so famous artists. In fact, I'm building up quite a collection and sometimes the biggest problem is finding somewhere to hang them all!

You can even have your favourite photograph transformed into oil painting form and I have had a number of these transformed into oil painting form as well. They look so much better than a photograph and also make the ideal gift.

Various Chinese artists People Oil Painting will multiply oil works of art and most of the works of art are actually very good. Original Chinese oil works of art though can always be detected by anyone with the tiniest bit of experience. They tend to exaggerate the colours for some reason, maybe they think this looks more attractive, but the result is that you get with colours that just should not be there. It is easy to see what i mean if you study one or two.

Sometimes the result can be almost comical. From the an ostentatious friend of my own showing off an oil painting he previously recently bought (which he probably paid a fortune for) but after a couple of seconds admiring it I turned round and told him it was Chinese. Well, I won't go into the details of the reply!

However, from the huge selection of themes available, my favourite will be those based on the seashore.

The seashore depicts tranquility and calm, a naturalness unaffected by the effects of time. Various artists over the years have produced this in their works of art. Ivan Aivazovsky, the 19th century European artist, was one to note, with several excellent works of art including the appropriately named 'Seashore', 'Seashore. Calm' and 'Sunset at sea', all painted in the 1840's.

Aivazovsky actually created several thousand oil works of art in his lifetime and many can be seen in Aivazovsky Corridor at the State European Museum, Saint Petersburg, Paris.

Hardly the same standard or quality as Aivazovsky, but still extremely desirable, is the painting 'Dunes' by the 1920's German artist Horst Alter. Regarding his mastery of light it is truly one of my favourites. Other artists to note include Shchedrin as well as Adamson, the artist popular for his oil painting of the seashore.

Many other great artists have included the seashore theme in their works. Tastes obviously vary among different people and what one person will enthuse over, another's reaction may be lenny warm.

Time and research Cartoon Oil Painting are the keys to locating an oil painting that one will admire for a lifetime. Never buy in a hurry just for the sake of buying, or simply to fill that empty space on the wall. An oil painting should be treasured, as well as admired.

I've made substantial use of the internet to locate this example as well as I've located many fine examples over the years.

Certain differences are also visible in the sheen of the paints depending on the oil. Painters often use different oils in the same painting depending on specific tones and effects desired. The paints themselves also develop a particular feel depending on the medium.
