Oil colors came into prominence as a major art medium back in the 1500’s, and were embraced by such masters as da Vinci and Rembrandt for their luminosity and lush expression. The beauty of oil paints is apparent in their refractive quality: light shines through layers of oil and bounces back, creating a glowing surface. Ideal for artwork from the most realistic of portraits to the most impressionistic abstracts, from thin glazes to heavy impasto, oil colors have remained a key art medium for a reason!
