A Revolutionary Bright Idea for Oil Colorists
Most experts will agree that linseed oil is the most flexible of all the oils used in the production of oil color. The reason pale oils are used is because linseed oil was not all that pale and tended to give a slight yellowish cast when the painting was finished. Additionally, it would darken over time, especially if the painting was stored.
This fact has caused havoc for museums and collectors. It has reduced the intensity of the color and forced artists to use egg tempera or acrylic colors.
An artist’s understanding of the materials is another important element of the art of painting. Having better materials is more archival, makes for more options and possibilities, and a greater understanding overall of what one is doing.
