Materials The Artist Used To Create this Piece Of Art


Type of canvas: linen fabrics, it comes first in terms of strength and not absorbing refined paint oils


Sable brushes; While many other natural and synthetic hairs are used for brushes, nothing has quite matched the quality of sable. A brush head made from kolinsky sable, a Siberian weasel that's hair is said to cost three times the price of gold by weight, is the best for control and pinpoint accuracy.


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.


Impasto technique; Impasto is a technique used in this painting, where paint is laid on canvas thickly, usually thick enough that the brush or painting-knife strokes are visible, when dry, impasto provides texture.
