As a picture gets additional layers, the paint must get oilier or the final canvas will break and peel. There are a number of other painting medium that can be used in oil painting, include cold wax, resins, and varnish. These added medium can support the artist in correcting the translucency of the paint, the shine of the paint, the thickness or 'body' of the paint, and the ability of the paint to grip or hide the brushstroke. These variables are strongly connected to the expressive capacity of oil coat.
When we look at original oil paintings, the various character of oil paint allow one to sense the choice the artist made as they apply the paint. For the spectator, the paint is motionless, but for the artist, the oil paint is a fluid or semi-fluid and must be stirred 'onto' the painting surface.

Nearly all source, in general Vasari, ascribed northern European watercolorist of the 15th century, and Jan van Eyck in particular, with the "discovery" of painting with oil medium on wood panel, however Theophilus basically give instruction for oil-base painting in his treatise. Early Netherlandish work of art in the 15th century was however the first to create oil the usual painting, pursued by the rest of Northern Europe, and after that Italy. The popularity of oil stretch through Italy as of the North, starting in Venice in the late 15th century. By 1540 the earlier method for painting on board, tempera had become all but vanished, although Italians persistent to use fresco for barrier paintings, which was more harder in Northern climates.

professionals to create work in a public venue. Three prizes were awarded including one by a jury of professionals and local dignitaries.
The theme; "Him and Her"....The challenge; Complete a piece in two days. Jacques' thoughts on how his work would relate to the theme; Two turned forms representing Male and Female specifically, yet to convey several ideas. Although the forms may relate to non-realistic seaforms or creatures and each single form, being unique with an ability to stand alone..... together represent a combined relationship. As with any relationship between two objects [not necessarily human, but including plants, animals and man-made objects] the intent was to reveal compatibility, similarity, individuality and the importance of unity as well....no matter where one comes from or what side of an ocean.
Jacques received the highest honor, the Professional Juror's Award which is based on the criteria of technique, creativity, relation to the theme and emotional provocation. With this comes the honor of returning to Breville in 2009 as President of the Jury for the next competition. He is the only artist outside of France ever to be accepted to this event.

Oil painting art reproduction gets its name because it is oil painting that is intended to be painted over in a scheme of working in layer. There is a popular misconception that oil painting art reproduction should be monochromatic, perhaps in gray-scales. In fact, a multi-color oil painting art reproduction is much more useful and was used extensively by oil painting art reproduction artists such as Giotto (whose oil painting art reproduction techinque is described in detail by Cennino Cennini).
The colors of the oil painting art reproduction can be optically mingled with the subsequent oil painting art reproduction, without the danger of the oil painting art reproduction colors physically blending and becoming muddy. If oil painting art reproduction is done properly, it facilitates over painting. If it seems that if one has to fight to obscure the oil painting art reproduction, it is a sign that it was not done properly.
