The oil painting is considered "classic supreme discipline". An advantage of the oil painting is one can work out subtleties bettert and the colors retain their full brightness after drying. Through the mostly thick impasto the pictures appear vivid and thus alive. For my oil painting I use high quality, fade-resistant oil colors by company Schmincke. I paint my paintings on primed canvas, which is already stretched on a wooden frame. The sides are painted by me, so that the paintings can be hung without a frame.
