Oil and Watercolor Portraits

Oils are the most common when talking about traditional art. The most famous and long-lasting art in history was done in oils. Oils have a special feel, colors don’t have any limitations, they are soft and rich like no other medium you can see or buy. Oils must be the king among painting and drawing media. However modern art and techniques become, oils will always have their special place on the top.

If you’re looking for a traditional, long-lasting piece of art, it you want to see deep colors and many layers… if you want texture, oils are your medium.



Recently I’ve become painting with watercolors. I’ve fallen in love with the flow and simplicity of using them. They allow me to work fast and use more mediums (like ink or pastels) along with them. Unlike with oils, watercolors dry fast. However, the depth is lost compared to deep and oily layers of oils.

Choose your favorite medium with care!
