Hand blown glass has been around because middle of the last century B.C. Sand art was born in Petra Jordan back in the 1920s or previous.

Aeration Oils or Mediums Used in Oil Painting

The various oils used as mediums in oil painting are known as aeration oils. The term is useful as a prompt that different oils have different aeration times and properties. These mediums are varied with oil paint both to adjust the way the paint handle directly from the tube (for example, make it thinner or lengthen the drying time) and to modify the character of the paint from what you get directly from a paint tube (for example, make it transparent or opaque, gloss or matt).

Ideal mediums are colourless, lasting, flexible, and do not power the colour of a pigment. Knowledge the exacting properties of a drying oil is part of the vital technical knowledge an oil painter should have. Keep in mind that when an oil paint feels dry to the touch, it will still be aeration under the surface for a quantity of time, which is why the principle of painting 'fat over lean' is so important in oil painting.

Linseed oil is complete from the seeds of the flax plant. It adds gloss and simplicity to paints and is obtainable in several forms. It dries very methodically, making it ideal for underpainting and original layers in a painting. Refined linseed oil is a well-liked, all-purpose, pale to light yellow oil which dries withing three to five days. Cold-pressed linseed oil dry somewhat faster than advanced linseed oil and is considered to be the best quality linseed oil.

How to Paint Reflections in Water, With Watercolor Paints

This watercolor painting class shows you three ways to paint mirror image in water. I've used the same picture for all three approaches so you can easily evaluate results. The aim is to learn special ways of painting water, so that you can either differ the way you approach it or just choose the method you like best.

I’ve chosen a picture of a windmill as the subject for this work out because this is just that bit more attractive than a normal house, and there is the added difficulty of the sails with their angles to get right!

The Indian Portrait show Representing Mughal Empire

The Indian Portrait analyses the era from the height of the Mughal Empire in the 16th century to the Raj period in the 18th. The art synthesized the Mughals’ Persian history with the Western art that had a rising presence in the Mughal court in Delhi. From the West came a latest realism in faces and the introduction of equestrian portraiture, for instance, but the decorative brilliance, mineral hues and spatial flatness of previously Indian and Persian art remained.
