Museums and art galleries are at the top of my list for places to visit in a new city. I enjoy looking at the paintings the most. I love visiting the museum gift shops, at the end of my visit. Those poster reproductions are really inexpensive, but don’t do much to capture the look and feel of the original works of art. As an art historian, I know all about the particulars of types of paintings, styles, techniques, and use of materials. I simply wouldn’t stand for a cheap knock-off poster—”a mediocre copy of another man’s genius” (a line from Little Women which I have always loved). The oil paintings on offer at the Cheap Oil Painting.com are of high quality and are beautiful. The paintings are all hand-painted, yet they are reasonably priced.
Oil painting — something I have always wished I had the patience for. I have dabbled in acrylic and watercolour painting, but nothing has the lasting effect and range of techniques available than oil paint.
Here are a few of my favourite paintings, recreated (painted by hand) and available on Cheap Oil Painting.com:
