Discover the Oil category among 5M contemporary artworks selected in the art collections of 1M artists. Discover, exhibit, sell or purchase paintings, photographs, illustrations or any other original works of art on the online gallery.
The oils used as binders and commonly used are linseed, poppy seed, walnut or safflower oil. These choices give the paint a range of properties, such as drying and yellowing time.
Depending on the oil, some differences are also visible in the brightness of the paints. A painter can use different oils in the same painting depending on the pigments and surface effects desired, the desired texture more or less liquid or pasty, or obtain a varnish appreciated for its body and brilliance.
The common feed displays chronologically all the artworks added by the artists. This feed is public, but limited to creations with a rating >=32 points for non-registered members. The limitation may vary depending on how Art Limited staff wants to improve the level and quality of the site.
