Oil on canvas

A type of paint that dries slowly and consists of pigment particles suspended in oil for drying, mostly linseed oil. By adding a solvent like turpentine, the paint's viscosity may be modified and vanish can also be added to increase glossiness of the paint film that's dried. Use of oil began long time ago in Europe from as early as the 12th century where it was commonly used for decoration. It was however, not adopted to be used as a medium up until the 15th century.

Wood

Wood is one of the most ancient and versatile materials used to create artwork. It has been used as the base for paintings, to make brush handles, pens and pencils, as easels to support canvas, for wood engraving, woodcut and woodblock printing, and sculpting.

Etching and Aquatint

Etching and Aquatint are terms related to printing. An Aquatint has the master printing plate etched with microscopic pits and cracks to produce unlimited gradations in tone. This helps to re-create the broad and flat tints seen in watercolor drawings and ink washes.
