Original Paintings By Local Artist

Stunning Original Paintings by Local Artist Can Be Found at Niehaus Fine Art.

For as long as we have been working with oil, oil canvas paintings have reigned supreme as unique and invigorating artistic productions. The origins of oil paintings can be traced back to Southern Europe where early artists would combine and compound animal fats with other ingredients to craft the first form of oil paints. These paints were used throughout the walls of the grotto until the 15th Century when Jan Van Eyck began developing proper oil paintings derived from nuts and linseed oil. Here at Niehaus Fine Art, I endeavor to offer my clients access to oil original paintings by local artist and professionals. Let's take a moment to walk you through my work.


Why Consider Oil Canvas Paintings?


As one of the most dominant artistic mediums in the history of art, oil painting has scored its spot atop the ladder of creativity. The reason that many artists turn to oil is simple, the medium is creative and flexible allowing for versatility of concepts that other mediums simply cannot match. As we noted above, the origins of oil paintings can be traced back to the 15th Century when the first oils were properly developed.


As a lifelong artist who has spent a considerable amount of time switching between acrylics, oils, and watercolors, I can say with confidence that some of my finest work has been done with oil on canvas. As most of the artwork we are familiar with during the American Revolution were of oil paintings, it also feels distinctly American to pursue this medium.


There are many advantages of working with oil painting and that surely informs the work that I do on my oil canvas paintings. Among the most notable advantages are the hard wearing colors that blend well and dry slowly. Watercolor paints often have the advantage of being free and exposed to the air without fears of drying.
