Why This Original Oil Painting Is Unique

Expressionism is an artistic style in which the artist expresses not the objective reality but rather the subjective emotions and responses that objects and events arouse within a person.


Alla prima is an Italian phrase that means ‘at first attempt’. It refers to a wet-on-wet approach whereby wet paint is applied to previous layers of still-wet paint, often in a single sitting. Alla prima oil paintings are usually completed within a single session. This made it popular with the Impressionists, as they were able to more easily capture the fleeting light and color of the environment.


Impasto is a technique used in painting, where paint is laid thickly on an area of the canvas, usually thick enough that the brush or painting-knife strokes are visible. Paint can also be mixed right on the canvas. When dry, impasto provides texture; the paint appears to be coming out of the canvas.


Type of canvas: cotton fabrics.


Hog Bristle brushes; Hog hair bristle has a unique remarkable brushstroke, stiff hog hair brushes (referred to as bristle brushes) enable the artist to adjust the color gradient on canvas, i.e., adding more pressure on the hog's hair bristle would blend two overlaying tones on the canvas. Also, the Hog's hair brush's stiffness enables the artist to work with high-consistency oil paint, if the artist intends to create an oil painting with a remarkable texture.


For solvents, the artist used turpentine, which increases the fluidity of oil paints but makes the binder oil dry faster, also used clove oil as a solvent to delay the dryness of the binder, as it delays the oxidation process.


As a binder, the artist used Linseed oil, which dries to form a strong flexible film, and also Safflower oil(which takes more time to dry).

Artists mixed high-quality pigments with both Binder(linseed oil) and Solvent(turpentine) to create the desired consistency and finish.
