Stella Adler Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.

Kojiro Tomita Art is the desire of a man to express himself, to record the reactions of his personality to the world he lives in. Amy Lowell To send light into the darkness of men's hearts - such is the duty of the artist. Schumann We all know that Art is not truth.

Pablo Picasso ART QUOTES BUT that's what being an artist is - feeling crummy before everyone else feels crummy. The New Yorker VERY few people possess true artistic ability.

Andy Warhol SOME OIL PAINTING FACTS OIL painting was first used in Western Afghanistan.
THE medium made its way throughout Asia and the Middle East between the fifth and ninth century. IT did not become popular, though, until its use in 15th century Europe. SEVERAL Renaissance artists are credited for the invention of painting with oil paints, but the actual inventor is unknown. THERE is a modern oil paint that is heated to 265 to 280 degrees Fahrenheit first before painting and dries when it is cool.
This kind of paint resembles normal oil paints and is often shown as oil paint. There are different types of oils that are used to create oil paints. THESE types include linseed oil, poppyseed oil, walnut oil and safflower oil. EACH type of oil creates a different look and dries at a different time. THERE are other types of media that are often used alongside oil painting.
THESE types of media include resins, waxes and varnishes. SOMETIMES oil paints are boiled in resins before use. RESINS usually are pine or frankincense. These media can help protect the painting, give it shine, translucency and density. BEFORE the popular choice of canvas, oil paints were used on wood panels. OIL paint was also used to paint shields in the Middle Ages for tournaments and for decoration.
THESE shields were stronger when painted with oil paints instead of tempera paints, which were popular at the time. OIL paint revolutionized art. Because it’s slow to dry, it freed artists to take their time with a painting, change their minds, make corrections, and even start over. OIL paints dry to the touch within two weeks, and are generally dry enough to be varnished in six months to a year.
It may take years for a painting to dry completely. THE earliest known oil paintings, Buddhist murals found in Afghanistan’s Bamiyan caves, date to around the 7th century CE. OIL paints don’t evaporate to dry; instead, they solidify through oxidation. PAINTING with oils didn’t become widespread until the 15th century, when Flemish masters like Jan van Eyck perfected the technique.
THE paint tube was invented in 1841 by American painter John Goffe Rand. Before then, oils were stored in animal bladders. BASIC oil paint is a mixture of ground-up pigment, binder (usually linseed oil), and thinner (turpentine). LEONARDO da Vinci improved the process for making oil paint, cooking it with beeswax. PIGMENTS can be made from minerals and organic materials, including semiprecious stones and snail mucus.
THE most expensive pigment was ultramarine—deep blue. Made from lapis lazuli, it was once more costly than gold. UNTIL the 19th century, artists had to mix their own oil paints each day by hand. IT can go on as a thin film (glaze) or thick, textured layer (impasto). OIL painting was first used in Western Afghanistan. THE medium made its way throughout Asia and the Middle East between the fifth and ninth century.
IT did not become popular, though, until its use in 15th century Europe. SEVERAL Renaissance artists are credited for the invention of painting with oil paints, but the actual inventor is unknown.
