Using oil paints is the process of painting with varied pigments with a medium of drying oil that often includes linseed oil, poppy seek oil, safflower oil and walnut oil as a binder. Artists use several different oils to achieve different effects. Oil may also be boiled with resin or frankincense to create a varnish that has a lot of body and gloss. Oil paint was first used by Indian (Buddhist) and Chinese painters in western Afghanistan between the 5th and 10th century and did not gain popularity until about the 15th century. It's use finally migrated west during the Middle Ages and became the main medium during Northern Renaissance to replace the previous use of tempera paints. Norther European painters such as Jan van Eyck is often credited for inventing the use of oil paint on wood panel. After it's success in Northern Europe the use of oil paint migrated south to Italy where such notable artists as Leonardo da Vinci use it to pain the famous "Mona Lisa". Towards the end of the 15th century and beginning of the 16th century wood panels were replaced by canvas and oil on canvas as a medium became very popular and still is today. Rubens, Titian, Rembrandt, Raphael as well as Vermeer, most of the Impressionists such as Monet, Renoir as well as Van Gogh and Picasso and Kandinsky all uses oil paints as their main medium to apply paint onto canvas.

  • Artists Describing Their Art:

    Emilio Merlina - I was born in 1950 in the North East of Italy from a polish mother and a sicilian father. I toured the world until I was 35, then I returned to Italy and picked up again my old passion painting and sculpture. As for myself, I can only say thoughts and paintings, paintings and thoughts. Everything maybe useless, however everything is life. i?1/2The human being leaves its signs, graffiti, indian dreams and imagination. Now I only have left a few more possibilities to express the colors which are not. Only the sign, scratched, angry or brushed is the witness. The sign has passed from there and there it has lived.i?1/2 Emilio Merlina Some hear if a door opens Others hear a latch which opens or closes Others more they hear the Angel when he turns over a page of the Great Book From the novel Missa Sine Nomine By Ernst Wiechert I have words which relegate my hunger And the hunger which owns my body but which do not confine them I have words which are both my confined hunger and body By the Italian poetess Paola Lovisolo ...

    Luise Andersen - Luise'Mignon' Andersen Luise'Mignon' Andersen has only recently begun to reveal her lifes work. Soon after her debut she exploded onto the mainstream art world. Her breathtaking pieces have captured international interest. The stories Luise'Mignon' is telling through her truly deep, layered works seem to decipher the past and foretell the future, perhaps sharing her window to other dimensions and a seventh sense. Her detailed acrylic'Mignon' series speaks to the beholder. They inspire raw emotion and ignite ones imagination. The indescribable nature of the "Duree De Ma Vie" in particular has a growing portion of the art community considering it the conception of an entirely new style.

    Vladimir Volosov - I was born in 1937 in Leningrad, USSR (now St. Petersburg, Russia). My way to art was a lengthy one. Before becoming an artist, I studied for thirty years at the forefront of modern physics as a PhD scientist and professor, author more than 150 scientific articles in contemporary laser physics. Thirty years of strenuous scientific work on the front edge of modern physics gives me a deep feeling for the anxiety and unprotectedness of the world's beauty. The formula, "beauty saves the world" fits my own attitude. My creed is also embodied in the statement: "to have time to realize everything given to you by Nature." At the threshold of my fifties, I decided to live one more life, a new, alluring life of the free artist. I walked away from my established scientific career and completely devoted myself to painting. In 1991 I founded and headed the association "Light, Color and Art" to connect with scientists engaged in the arts. The main directions of my paintings are lyrical realism and abstract compositions. My paintings are about light, color, atmosphere and space. For me, the most important elements are light and color and their juxtaposition/nexus/meeting of...

    Johann Van Den Noort - Dutch native, painter and artist JOHANN VAN DEN NOORT (Kampen 1940) has an undeniable bond with the sea and therefore maintains a unique position within the modern art world.

JOHANN VAN DEN NOORT's paintings summon feelings of sovereignty. An exuberance arising from meeting the elements and visually capturing an abstract image into an emotoinal reality.

    Zigmars Grundmanis - My friends One day I stopped for a moment and realized........... I realized that I have to say about the beauty around us. Beauty, power and neverending energy of nature.

My goal is quality and realistic look of painting, positive energy and emotions....
