Paintings in Oil by D. Van Baalen


Eye-catching fine art for the art connoisseur or home decor.

Skillfully painted in oil by artist D. Van Baalen, these OIL PAINTINGS are done with attention to detail, molding the subject with light and shadow to give them three dimensional and realistic appearance. As an OIL PAINTING TEACHER, the artist likes to work one on one with a student and tries to make the student more aware of structure and the way colors change to show distance both in shadow and in light. The student needs to try to have an understanding of structure of the subject being portrayed (bone, joints, texture etc.) so they can feel as though they are actually touching and stroking the subject (still life, animal or portrait) with their brush when applying paint.

Even when OIL PAINTING in MINIATURE the artist shows the same concern for distance, light and shadow as well accuracy of detail.

The ORIGINAL OIL PAINTINGS on this site are for sale. For D. VAN BAALEN CUSTOM ART you would like painted or to purchase an ORIGINAL OIL PAINTING shown on this site contact the artist today.
