All artists choose their own medium when producing original art. Of course, each artist will prefer his or her own method for various reasons. I would like to outline the pros and cons of each technique so as a buyer, you can decide for yourself whether or not an oil painting from our catalogue is the best choice for you.
Paintings that are done with acrylic paints have the advantage of being resistant to aging because they are unaffected by light. Acrylic paints are the easiest to handle; however; since there is such a fast drying time it is difficult for the artist to make any corrections once the painting has dried, and forces him to work as quickly as possible to avoid the colors drying while still on the palette.
Watercolor painting was born from dry powder pigments dissolved in water and rubber. Watercolors have a delicate, transparent feel to them. Some artists prefer this, as it gives off a floaty, diaphanous romanticism, but many others find it hard to achieve coherency and vividness with such a lackluster palette and muted colors.
Oil paintings have been popular since the 15th century. Oil-based paints lend a certain sense of realism to the painting that is nearly impossible to achieve with other techniques. Oil paintings have long been considered the most prestigious of all painting types, due to the ability of the painter to convey the drama and intensity of his subject. The artist is also able to achieve a much higher level of detail using oil paints. This, and the fact that oil paint takes considerably longer to dry, makes corrections very easy.
