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.

    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.

    Alena Rumak - My birthplace is Belarus. Currently I am living and working in the UK. I have always had a great passion for painting which has spurred me on. I learnt through my own research, my own feelings and experimentation. My work predominantly in oil, acrylic and pastel....

    Ruslan Khais - For the last four years the landscape has been predominant subject in my art. Shimmer of sun light, coming trough the leaves and its ever-changing reflections in the water become the subject of my paintings. I am searching for pastoral images that have some sort of resonance rather than meaning. My fascination with light has started as an attempt to rethink the legacy of Pointillism, which in our time of the digital media and pixilation, has found a new frame of reference. Emphasizing the well organized chaos of colorful dots, stripes, seemingly mechanical brush marks and alluding to some aspects of digital photography, is resulting the paintings with soft focus were the border between realistic image and abstraction are blurred. The way I wont the painting to come out is more the way of trying to depict an image what is not about reality, but one that is some how in between the actuality of a scene and something that is in your head ...

    Lauren Litwa - Each Painting starts with a Picture in my Mind, Daydream or Just Grows as I Draw onto the Paper, Canvas or Panel. I Stay Open to the Process and Let it Flow. Being Open and Allowing the Painting to take on a Life of its Own is where the Excitement and Energy comes in. Its Never Boring and Always Challenging. Its what makes Interesting and Exciting work. Nature Influences All. A Healthy Planet with Protected Wildlife is a Great Concern. Without that where would we All BE ...

    John Sims - Following some thirty years working as a graphic designer and illustrator I began stone carving in 2000 and in 2002 I returned to college at Christ Church Canterbury in England to study BA Fine Art. In 2007 I went to the Cyprus College of Art to study for a Post Grad Diploma in Fine Art under the great Cypriot artist, Stass Paraskos. At the end of the course I was asked to stay on and run the Summer Schools and to be tutor on the Post Grad course. An incredible experience and an enormous influence on my work. My work now involves less stone carving more often found timber or kebab sticks My drawing in some respects has turned a full circle in the sense that prior to sculpture my illustration work was colourful but painstakingly detailed and stylised. At college I concentrated on measured observational life drawing in pencil which fed into the simple lines of my mainly figuratively based stone carvings. Whilst in Cyprus I re-discovered colour in both my drawing and sculpture. Dreams and mythology filled my waking and sleeping hours. Oil pastel and oil sticks became my favourite mediums to quickly capture these glimpses of ...

    John Powell - My art evoke a dialogue a message as a language I speak to create peace in a cosmic dialogue. If you are not honest,dont make artbecause ART is TRUTH time is Life time ceases to existdeath exist time is temporarytime movestime traps itself in timetime exist in time. My work speaks in a context of time,a painter and more recently exploring Photography.I choose not to privilege any one medium.The emotional and psychological content of my subject,the way the body expresses its dialogueemotion.It contextualizes the concepts of the duality of the meaning of the imagery. My style is an expression of my phillosophy which becomes a language,using,Post Modern,Expressionism,Latin American Tradition,Surrealism,soft Classism and Photography.It expresses my deep awareness of global issues and is counterbalanced with my cultural heritage. My inspiration originates from lifenature Its too spiritual to express.However,it is the same expressive energy as the work,transfused between energiesI use a certain iconograhy,which becomes a language. My art has helped me to see that nothing on earth is solitary,all things are interlinked. In order to see the impossible,you need to see the invisible My ...
