Spring brings inspiration

Ana is working hard to complete all her art portfolio to finalize her IB Art class, she now working on an oil painting of three tulips, very nice!

Oil paint was first used in western Afghanistan sometime between the 5th and 9th Centuries, it did not gain popularity until the 15th century. Its practice likely migrated westward during the Middle Ages. Oil paint eventually became the principal medium used for creating artworks as its advantages became widely known.

The technique Ana likes the most is the use of palette knives and painting in layers, it is remarkable to see her creativity, I think she also enjoys very much this type of art!
