The most common and popular technique is to use pigments mixed with drying oils – for example poppy seed, safflower, walnut or linseed oil. As you may probably guess, all of these oils have different properties and they also change the properties of the paint, such as colour, drying time, its consistency and such things.

Due to these different properties, original oil paintings can be really interesting. Some artists are able to create almost photo-realistic paintings, which are very popular among critics and customers. Even though the history of original oil paintings is fairly long (the first oil paintings were created in 6th century), they weren’t that much popular until the Renaissance, when it soon turned into the most popular painting technique. Although original oil paintings are still very popular, not everyone can afford them due to their insanely high prices.
