The mystique of classical paintings from the great masters of oil such as Monet, Leonardo da Vinci and Rembrandt, there is something esoteric and deeply engrained in ones psyche about oil paintings.

Each oil painting is painstakingly created by hand with care. It begins with a spark of inspiration, be it a simple flash of color or an elaborate thought. Each layer of oil paint requires several days to cure, but that is how oil paintings shine!

But some paintings are better said with watercolors. There is an alchemy to creating with watercolors. Technical or whimsical, humorous or philosophical, there is a certain magic that only the delicate nature of watercolors can provide.
