Oil Paints & Mediums

Oil painting has sustained its popularity among many painters for being a reliable and long-lasting medium.

Oil paints traditionally consist of colour pigments suspended in a drying oil, such as linseed oil. Due to the transparency of linseed oil, the colour that you apply does not change drastically when dry, and when materials are carefully selected and applied, oil paints will not deteriorate over time.

In addition, there are oil painting mediums which are designed to speed or slow the drying time and texture of these paints.
