Oil Paintings: Unlike many modern-day paintings, these works are done on canvas or panels prepared by the artist. Many of the paintings are done over the period of several weeks using thin transparent layers of paint over an "underpainting", thus allowing a deep inner luminosity and the capturing of subtle detail. This method of painting was widely practiced in the Renaissance.
