Back to top

Nota de aplicación

A technique that is a hybrid of drawing and printmaking. The oil transfer drawing technique is achieved by covering a surface, often a sheet of paper, with oil paint or printing ink, laying a clean sheet of paper over it, and drawing on top with a mark-making tool; the pressure of the tool causes the ink or paint from below to transfer to the back of the top sheet. The technique was used by both Paul Gauguin and Paul Klee, but predates them both.
