Oil painting is done on pigmented surfaces and the paints are mixed with oils. Linseed oil was specially used in early modern Europe. The other oils which were used are poppy seed oil, walnut oil and safflower oil. All these oils gave different properties to the paintings and had different drying times. Oil paint is applied in a technique called fat over lean. Jan Van Eyck is considered to be the inventor of oil paints. Oil paints have unique features and are therefore used by famous artists of all ages.
