oil painting is a technique in that has been around for
centuries beginning with the early Dutch painters, such as,
Jan van Eyck and Rogier van der Weyden and French
impressionists like Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh and
realists like John Singer Sergeant and Robert Henri.
The method is
quickly painting over already applied wet paint. It is a
fast process because the painter must paint all of the
layers before any of the paint dries. The late Bob Ross used
this technique in teaching others how to paint.
