Oil painting is one of the most popular mediums of painting that uses a mixture of three elements – a pigment, a binder, and a thinner. In an oil painting, the pigment, which is the color element, is suspended in drying oils (binder). In other words, the ground-up pigment is carried or held up by the oil on the canvas. Usually, refined linseed oil is used.
The thinner is added to the mixture of pigment and oil so that it would be easier for the artist to handle the paint with a brush. Sometimes, an oil painting consists of several other elements such as a liquid drier or siccative that can aid in faster drying of the paint.
Once the oil painting is completed, it may be coated with picture varnish to give it a layer of protection from damages, dirt, dust, and accidents. Coating an oil painting with varnish is also great because it really brings out the tone, depth, and intensity of the colors used, just like how the artist intended or envisioned it. It helps to add a layer of luster to the painting even after it has dried. What makes oil painting so unique is that it enables an excellent fusion of colors and tones when compared to other fluid painting mediums, making the end product a work of art unmatched in textural variation.
Oil painting can be done on any surface directly including walls,ceilings and on canvas, which is the most popular from the early days.The oil painting has been around for a long time. Its earliest usage dates back to the 5th century A.D. in the Bamian Valley, Afghanistan. However, it was only around the 15th century in Europe that this medium of painting became extremely popular and appreciated.Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night, and Johannes Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring are all oil paintings.
