Many people are familiar to oil paintings but the knowledge they know about oil painting is not that wide.


Oil Paint are made from pigments and linseed oil. They even use different kinds of oil like sunflower oil and many more.


Traditionally the artist sketches whatever he or she plans to paint onto the canvas with charcoal or some paint that has been thinned. Or whatever paint the painter wants to use.


The best way to apply the paint is in layers with each one being oilier than the one below so that the paint will dry properly.

You can use palette knife, rag of paint from the tube for the moving paint effect.
