Oil painting is the first medium most non-artists conjure mentally when they think of a painter—someone dressed in a smock with a beret, wood palette in hand, standing in front of an easel and dabbing at a canvas. Indeed, oil painting was widely adopted as an artistic medium since the 15th century, although oil paintings in caves in Afghanistan date back as far as 650 AD. Oil paints have a fragrance and consistency unlike any other paint, and can be used in any genre of work or painting style you can imagine. Jerry’s Artarama proudly features a lengthy list of free online art videos for oil painters—from the budding artist to the professional looking to tweak their techniques or enhance their own personal style.
