“Original” quite simply means a unique one-off piece or small edition hand-pulled print from the artists own hand - Oil Painting.
Oil paint has a very specific grinding process, settling time and often is triple-milled....
In professional paints ranges come in series where paints made with more expensive pigments will be a higher series and cost more to buy than those made with cheaper pigments which will be a low series.
Oil paintings will always demand higher pricing because oil is a very difficult medium to become proficient with, and usually it will take the artist much longer to complete a piece.
Also, the cost of paints, brushes and canvas is quite an investment.
Brushes for oil can run into the hundreds of dollars.
Art reproduction, otherwise known as art replicas, fine art reproductions, reproduction oil paintings, art copies, are just that – they are copies of usually well-known paintings that are hand-painted by a professional artist.
