The practice of making detailed graphite pencil drawings goes back to the the 17th and 18th centuries, when Plumbago drawings were popular for minor portraits. Plumbago refers to the combination of graphite and clay that makes up the core of most graphite pencils even to this day. These plumbago portraits were primarily drawn on vellum, not paper, and their details and shading tend to be lighter than the hyper-realistic pencil portraits of today.
Oil painting is the process of painting with pigments with a medium of drying oil as the binder. Commonly used drying oils include linseed oil, poppy seed oil, walnut oil, and safflower oil. The choice of oil imparts a range of properties to the oil paint, such as the amount of yellowing or drying time.
A Little Intro
It is my belief that I have a unique style of art, I have found something different from anything else available on the market and I am extremely proud of that fact as there is not much work from artists these days that is entirely original and exclusive to them.
I do not choose to paint the way I do I paint the way that comes natural to me and what you see in my paintings are an expression of my self and no one else. I paint what I would want to have in my home and if you like my art then we already have something in common.
