Real oil painting on canvas
Print on canvas with added oil
How to distinguish a real painting from print on canvas with added oil:
1) In the print most of the painting ‘s space is flat, and only minor parts are painted with oil (in the example with a boy, only the eyes is painted by oil). But it is still just a photo on canvas, not art.
2) The print doesn’t have any texture, dynamics. That’s why it is not interesting for our eyes. The real painting is full of texture, dynamics, shadows. We can consider the art for a long time. The real oil painting captures. The real painting is alive.
3) The pritnt’s canvas is very grainy, because no need to prime the canvas before printing. The cloth for handmade oil painting with good taste must be Cotton or Linen. We use Cotton.
