Everyone wants to have oil paintings on their walls these days.But with the prices of real paintings being more than likely unaffordable, good quality copies on canvas of masterpieces, that we at wahooart.com take pride in creating, can be good substitutes for the often priceless originals.
Reproduction-art buyers, in the market for both art prints and oil-painting reproductions of original works, are often disappointed.
Cheaper prices offered often lead them to buy poor quality reproductions from the many art-making “factories” around.
The favorite masterpieces of western art that have been excitedly ordered from the racks of pre-painted copies from these suppliers, can turn up to be poorly painted, with lovely details not copied well, and cheap oil colors that soon fade.
Wahooart.com takes pride to produce both archival canvas prints and commissioned oil paintings that are as true as possible to the originals safeguarded in museums, galleries or private collections far away.
We are definitely not an art factory and our team of expert artists only paint canvases that have been ordered individually by our many customers. Plus we only used archival-quality canvas to make stunning copies of originals that will last and last on the wall of your home or office.
The art factories often use cheap bulk-ordered canvas, and sometimes computer ink-jet print on it with poor quality ink as a guide for applying oil paints. It’s no wonder then that the anticipated reproduction of the vibrancy and depth of color of the original are missing.
With the underlying ink running when exposed to moisture, your treasured copy of a classical oil painting may one day surprise you by turning into a runny subtle watercolor overnight.
We at Wahooart know from long experience that the best reproduction comes from using top-quality canvas and oil paint. We recommend that our customers choose the finest quality linen canvas we have available for both our prints and paintings that we can deliver to your home or office.
We then prime the good canvas surface first before applying oil paints to it. In that way the reproduced painting lasts much longer and the paint finish is much better.
Sometimes with a cheap reproduction, oil paints are applied on top of an ink-jet print of the original image being copied. Moisture can easily spoil the ink surface underneath the oil paint.
To test for fake paintings, slightly moisten a corner of a painting. Any ink from the ink-jet under-painting will float up to the surface in blobs. Holding up a cheap reproduction painting to the light will show up the ink print underneath the surface like a watermark on the painted surface.
WahooArtMuseum-quality oil paintings are much less susceptible to water damage, as good canvas allows moisture to dry.
Wahooart’s team of expert artists spends a lot of time on faithfully and lovingly reproducing details of the original work, observing all the composition, variation in tone, depth of color and pictorial details of the originals.
In that way, they accurately copy the passion and the life of the original masterpieces that you can proudly hang in your house or office. It’s best also for the reproduction to stay true to the size of the original work.
The result can then be an authentic-looking oil painting, with true aroma and brush texture of oil paint, that can grace your wall for a long time to come.
