How to be sure that a store creates real oil painting:
1) Ask a seller, can they provide a photo of the process of creating the painting at an early stage as in the example below:
2)Real painting can not cost 125 USD
Expenses of an oil painting on canvas:
А) 25USD delivery В) 10% (12,5USD) Etsy commission and PayPal.
С) 40USD cost of canvas and materials. D) 10%(12,5USD) – advertising on Etsy
Totally: 125-25-12,5-40-12,5 = 35USD Profit
The time to create a real painting is 3-4 days.
$ 35 for a print with added an oil paint is a great profit
$ 35 for 3 days is a beggarly salary even in the west European countries especially for the artist.
Be careful! Become the owner of real art, not a fake painting! I can provide you a list of shops who creates
True oil paintings!
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.
