Oil Painting Gallery
Oil paint is comprised of ground-up colored pigment suspended in a drying oil, usually linseed oil. The quality of oil paint varies based on the quality of the pigment used, how fine the pigment is and the medium which is used.
You can make oil paint more fluid by mixing it with more oil, or by adding a solvent, however, this also weakens the paint. Oil paint is generally at its most stable form straight from the tube.
They are versatile. You can vary the drying time and consistency of your paint dramatically using paint thinners and additional oil. This allows you to work with a wide range of painting techniques, including blending, glazing and scumbling.
They were favored by the all-time greats of painting. It is hard to argue the downside of using oil paints when so many amazing artists used them to such success.
Oil paintings seem to be held in higher regard by art collectors compared to acrylic paintings (there are some exceptions to this of course).
