I have a print of Cardinals. one on white playing the violin to one playing the piano with two onlookers, one in purple in chair looking up from his book, and three admiring cardinals around the fireside table with silverware. This was salvaged from an Estate that was 102 yo,back in 1970.

With our talented Chinese oil painters, we offer 100% hand made oil paintings on various subjects and styles. Real art is always expensive, even if it is a reproduction. Cost advantages in China make it possible to offer affordable real art to our customers in every corner of the world. Most of our oil painters were strictly trained and cultivated when they were in schools and colleges, this helps us handle all classic style commissions easily, not only Chinese oil painting.
Canvaz Inc has 6 years experience in the oil painting industry, and 4 years online sales experience. We sell only a thousand oil paintings annually, to maintain quality and the hand-made process. When painters get a design, they outline it by pencil on the white canvas, it's no wonder, even great oil painting masters use pencils, to create the first layer. At this moment, the oil painting is still rough and you can only see some big color blocks. One or two days later, it dries, and the painter begins on the second layer. Usually a piece of reproduction comes into being when third layer is done, if no correction is needed.
Categorized Oil Painting Reproductions
This shop offer oil paintings and portraits in almost every category including Abstract, Impressionism, Expressionism, Renaissance, Economical and many more. All hand painted by our highly trained and skilled oil painting artists.

Oil painting tips:
Art is a wonderful aspect of life that comes in many forms. Of all the beautiful art forms in the world, oil painting is considered to be a relatively new and beautiful form of art. The actual meaning of oil painting is painting with the use of oil pigments. Till the early fifteenth century, artists used to have a mythological and decorative outlook to art. However, with the Renaissance, artists began looking for different means of propagating their art.
This is when Jan Van Eyck first thought of oil painting. He nursed a desire to mimic nature in his paintings, but found it impossible to achieve with the existing tempera paint. Tempera paint was made from ground up pigments of plants and minerals that were combined with binder to form paint. However, since this paint tends to dry up quickly, smooth transitions in painting were quite impossible. So with the intention of acquiring realism in his paintings, Van Eyck conjured oil paint. He did this by using oil as a binder, instead of egg in the paint. He thought that adding oil would make colors look glossier in his painting. After trial and error, he found out that oil paintings gave their best when applied in several layers. He found out that with oil paints he could reach the realism and nature he was seeking in his art. So with this introduction of oil paints, many artists started using oil in their paint mixtures to make oil paining a popular form of art.
Painting is an inspiration; without any inspiration, it is impossible to paint. If you don’t feel inspired, drop your brushes and take a walk outside while looking at mother earth. If possible, visit a local gallery or museum for some inspiration for your oil painting. Once you are inspired and ready to paint, the first and foremost thing is to get some oil paints to start your oil painting with. When buying oil paints for your oil painting, it is better to buy quality primary and secondary colors than a range of cheap paints. Oil paints can be found in tubes, as water-mixable oils in tubes and blocks and oil bars that are in stick form and not oil pastels. It is very important to buy thinner to both dilute the paint and to help clean the brushes and palette. The best choice for a thinner is turpentine that helps maintain the oiliness of oil paint.
Oil colors may have changed since then, but the principals of oil painting remains the same. Improved technology has produced much better oil paints for the modern painter to paint with. When starting an oil painting, it is important to always start with an acrylic under painting as this paint dries quicker than oil painting. However, avoid using ivory black for under painting as it takes longer to dry than other paints. Then once the paint has dried, you may proceed to use oil paint. As you paint, you will realize the importance of good lighting for painting. With good lighting, the color of the painting is brought out, to lessen the strain on the eyes. Surprisingly, equally important to good lighting is good ventilation. When using materials like oil painting thinners and cleaners in the studio, it is very important to have good ventilation as these chemicals prove to be toxic.
The most important tool in oil painting besides paint is of course, the brush. It is very important to invest in a good set of brushes for your oil painting as cheap brushes tend to shed bristles when painting. The sable and synthetic sable brushes are the best for oil paintings. The nylon brushes are better for acrylic paints. Oil brushes long for you to paint away from the canvas so practice holding them towards the middle end of the handle. These brushes have to be taken good care of as if not cleaned and stored well, may end up ruined. Clean them with a quality brush cleaner and preserver that is easily got from online stores or in the local art store. Alcohol is also a strong solvent that can be used to clean away a layer of oil paint or oil varnish on the brush.
Now that all the tools for your oil painting are ready, get down to your oil painting! Lay out your oil paints on the palette in the same order each time you paint so that you will be able to pick the paint instinctively. The paints having lead, cobalt and manganese tend to dry quicker, so mix these colors with other colors to enhance the drying time of the au painting. Never dry your oil paintings in the dark as this causes a thin film of oil to rise to the surface, to finally yellow the painting. However, after drying, if the paint on the palette has too many wrinkles, it means that too much oil has been used in the medium of the painting.
Once the oil painting is done, comes the part of preserving and maintaining it. One of the disadvantages of oil painting is its tendency of cracking. To overcome this disadvantage, make sure that each layer of your oil paintings has a higher content of oil than the one below it. This is why it is always better to frame completed oil paintings. You can either frame it on your own with one of the oil painting frames we offer or have a professional do it for you. Although it may cost you some money, it is always better to have it framed by a professional as they have the knowledge, skill, ability and experience to frame the painting properly with extra care.
Once the oil painting is completed and framed, hang it in your living hall for people to admire, and to give some life and color to the otherwise blank wall!
Reproduction tips of oil painting(1)
Step of Reproduction of oil paintings:
1. Judge the original painting, the judge and and correct understanding of the painting is the key step. Sometimes you need to guess how the original painter made it, from the
initial idea to technic. For the biginner of reproducers of art, it's not a easy step. However, a few years experience as a painter would help a lot, even if you hadn't focus on
reproduction. However most failure of reproduction of oil painting are from experienced reproducers, some of them started the job without even think of this first step. You have
a. what material were used in this painting ? oil, acrylic, or mixed ?
2. Sketching: You have three options of sketching the painting. Traditionally, you will use a scaler /pantograph to sketch the rough outline and major part of the orignal ones. Pencil is the best tool to be used. Those who have outstanding technics can sketch the painting outline just by eyes and pencil, without a scaler. Modern painters has a better and easy solution: ink printer, ink printer can print the outline on canvas precisely.
3.first layer: Now You go to step 3, to paint the first layer. You need to paint big color blocks on the canvas, not too precisely. The first layer paintings shows the different style and skills of different painters, particularly on the color techs. A block of same yellow, by different painter or color maker, it's different. Some yellow are dull, some lusters. You can spent half day or a few weeks to finish the first layer, some of us like a rough layer, and others like a very good first layer. Because some painters can make the color to the right place at the very begining of first layer. Most painters hate it, they use at least two layers, in the first layer, the use "basic colors", and on second layer, thrid layer or even later layer, they paint over the first layer. Most color are not 100% opaque, so colors on each layer effect or interfere each other, the final result would be "rich color".
Modern painters like the bright color on oil paintings, for that reason, acrylic paintings are even more suitable for modern people. however the charm of traditional oil paints are still there, I debt great paintingw would be created by oil paints instead of acrylic in most cases.
It's still a good idea to hang a painting bought from oil painting shop on your sitting room wall, but people are tired of all different kind of images in daily life, so you can only choose those be-loved works or eye-catching oil paintings.
After viewing so much art and paintings in gallery, you would know what kind of paintings is your type, then you dig in on internet, finally you know lot of knowleges and history about these paintings and their authors. It's pleasing times when learning this.
Comparing with the posters, if you hanging an oil painting on wall, it gives quite different sense, a real painting is alive there, on the countrary, prints is dull and distant.
In recent years, more and more digital painters arise, because digital tools are very clean, and you can have many different tools to create amazing effects, it's far more intresting than painting on real canvas, the more interesting thing is, you can save the steps, and start from any steps at any time.
Paintings developement in Europe, since very earlier ages, was never influenced by cultures of other area in the world. So it has a very clear and continuous track line. On the countrary, Asian art development, particulary paintings, facing powerful effects from west world,encouuntered self-sceptic and self-denial period in 19 and 20 centuries
If you want to learn how to paint by oil on canvas, please start from viewing, view painting on galleries, museums. There is an old Chinese saying, know quality by comparing with each other. By appreciating and viewing different style paintings, you get your own taste on it.
Oil painting is cubic, and it lets out a lot of far more information, about the style, the thickness of strokes, the top color and the color beneath it, and how they effect each other. While looking at the posters, you got only one word to describe the comparation: flat.
When housing industry was booming in USA, the oil painting market was then brisk, mainly for interior decoration, so people take the oil painting as poster, and got the good feeling owning a real painting on canvas.
There are some media can help drying the painting, gas, and varnishing sprayers, but lot of artists hate using these, becasue it's not a natural way of drying.
The wholesale business of oil painting shops nowdays become very difficult, because large scale housing business failed, so do the interior business, so the focus of oil paintings is the core customers who loves painting really.
Now days, a lot of art peoplel still keep the good taste of oil painting, it's not for collection or making money, it's simply love.
It is so awesome that the buyer keep asking what the painting means when I am in a gallery, obviously the art dealer is not good at explaining an art
