Buy Hand-Painted Oil Paintings - A Unique Technique Full of Fascination

The first European oil paintings were created in the 13th century. A pioneer in this field was the Flemish painter Jan van Eyck, who constantly developed the technique further and thus contributed to its spread. The fascination that the new medium aroused was primarily based on overcoming the linear-oriented technique of tempera painting that had been predominant until then. Hand-painted oil paintings allowed for the creation of significantly realistic works that were closer to nature. Over the centuries, various painting techniques evolved - from the separation of form and colour, artists moved on to tone-on-tone painting and alla prima painting, and finally to mixed media. When you buy contemporary oil paintings today, depending on the artist's direction, you can discover various technical styles or combinations of such.

Brilliant Colours for Eternity - Buy Original Oil Paintings

This simple yet ingenious composition offers many benefits for both the artist and the art lover: Oil paints impress with excellent painting characteristics, allow for technical refinement, and can be worked on for an extended period due to their slow drying time. The viewer, in turn, benefits from a play of colours that is hard to surpass in brilliance and shine. Additionally, oil paintings are made to last for eternity: Even after many years, the colours continue to captivate the viewer with their radiance. Furthermore, they can be protected by applying a varnish. Anyone who decides to buy an oil painting can be certain that they will be able to enjoy this work for a truly long time.
