Buying an oil painting from Artinbulk is like stepping back in time!

Please read below how our artists, step by step, paint the oil paintings that are displayed on our website. You will learn that at Artinbulk, each and every oil painting is meticulously painted, brushstroke by brushstroke, starting with a blank artist canvas and ending with a true masterpiece!
1. The Paints
The oil paints utilized by our artists are specifically formulated to ensure pure, rich and vibrant colors, which is the result of the perfect balance of oil content and color pigment. In addition, the oil paints are designed for maximum durability and longevity, so you can enjoy your oil painting for many years to come. Please be assured that we pride ourselves in using only the finest oil paints that will stand the test of time, while providing truly rich textures and vivid colors!
2. The Artist Brushes
Our master artists use a wide array of brushes to accomplish their goal of painting the perfect masterpiece for our customers. We insist that our artists use only the highest quality artist brushes, which are always finely balanced for maximum stroke control. Professional artist brushes are made from a variety of fibers to create different effects. In addition, brush heads are available in almost a limitless selection of sizes and shapes, each ensuring our artists will achieve their desired results.
3. The Artist Palette
All of the oil paints our artists utilize come together on the artist palette. The artist palette is commonly constructed of very thin wood, designed to be held in the artist’s hand while resting on the arm of the artist. In addition to the wood palette, our artists may also use a flat tray that is conveniently located just below the canvas that is being painted. This tray serves a dual purpose as the palette for the oil paints and also a convenient surface to have all the artist brushes close at hand. The artist palette is the surface where all the oil paints are mixed together to achieve the desired colors needed by the artist to complete each masterpiece.
4. The Canvas
Our artists use canvas that is made from high quality, 100% cotton fabric. Cotton canvas is the preferred choice for our artists, because it is a very durable fabric for oil painting. The fine woven cotton canvas is coated with acid-free titanium gesso, which ensures long term life for our museum quality oil paintings. The 100% cotton canvas has both excellent fiber strength for stretching and is also woven to rigid specifications to meet the strict requirements of our master artists.
All of the oil paintings displayed on our website depict the actual works of art painted by our master artists. Our professional photography department takes high resolution photographs of the oil paintings in our huge in-stock inventory and then displays those photographs on our website. We do that so our customers can truly judge the quality of our oil paintings before they make a purchase. Please be aware that most of our competitors display only scanned images of the original museum paintings on their websites, so you really have no idea of the quality you will receive if you place an order.
