oil paint

is a slow-drying paint that is made by mixing pigments with oil. Linseed oil was originally used for this. Since the 16th century, "oil paint on canvas" has been the most commonly applied technique. Oil paint usually provides coverage. Because the paint dries very slowly, it is possible to allow colours and nuances to gradually merge into one another. When painting using oil paint, the artist is able to easily make changes. Because of the flexible nature, it is, for example, possible to paint a canvas or, to the contrary, apply the paint in thick layers, resulting in a viscous painting.
