Oil painting is a long-practiced art form, utilizing pigments and drying oils as a binder on surfaces like canvas or wood panels. Popularized throughout Europe centuries ago, this technique holds distinct advantages such as providing more versatility and vibrant, opaque colors. With the use of multiple layers and a broad range of tones from light to dark, oil painting is regarded for its distinct visual qualities. However, the method is a lengthy one due to the requisite drying period before each new layer can be added.
