Purchasing oil painting portraits or reproductions from our competitors :
Many of the oil painting reproductions and portraits from the competitions are done on fiberboard or thin canvas with low quality paints that might crack after a few years. You have an inferior painting if you are able to see a regular pattern that is not following the direction that the paint is applied to the canvas by the brush or there might only be highlights applied in strategic areas not to show that it is a mechanical reproductions. If your painting was purchase at auction or online and comes with a certificate of authenticity without showing a well identifiable source for reference and history, this was only a marketing ploy.
