Water miscible oil paintStyle is used in two senses: It can refer to the distinctive visual elements, techniques and methods that typify an individual artist's work. It can also refer to the movement orschool that an artist is associated with. This can stem from an actual group that the artist was consciously involved with or it can be a category in which art historians have placedthe painter.
