Custom Feng Shui oil painting of carps with lucky symbols

In this project, the customer did not supply any photo. He wanted a custom oil painting of carps with 8 auspicious symbols. Carps are auspicious elements associated with wealth and abundance in Feng Shui and is said to bring financial success and marital bliss along with good luck and positive energy. He liked the gold background in one painting. He wanted to add 8 auspicious symbols found in Buddhism into the painting, but he had one condition. He wanted the artist to “hide” the symbols in the painting and did not want the symbol to be too obvious so that the painting will not appear to be too “religious”.

What are the benefits of oil painting compared to photos?

1. Higher Value of a painting compared to a photo

A good artist can bring a painting to life with his brushstrokes in a way that no camera can imitate. It takes an artist many years to perfect the skill. As every art piece is hand painted, every painting is unique and influenced by the artist’s style and interpretation of the subject. Even a painting of the same scenery painted by 2 different artists will be different.  As such, many people regard a painting with higher value to painting than to a photo.


2.  Paintings add depth and personality

A good hand-painted oil portrait can add depth and personality to a subject, in a way which is not possible to be shown on a photograph. A professional artist can emphasize certain features in a painting or highlight certain details that are missing in a photograph. Even an unattractive or damaged photograph can be transformed by the artist into a masterpiece. A professional oil painting artist has the ability to change the background, play with the light and shadow and turn a boring image into a painting that is full of life and expression. This is why an oil painting is able to exude a beauty that no photo can ever match.



3.  Oil paintings can last forever whereas a photo will fade over time

Photographs tend to fade over time and can be easily damaged. Unlike photographs, oil paintings can last a very long time without any degradation. Look at the oil paintings by ancient artists like Michelangelo from the 16th century and you will see what I mean. These masterpieces are still around today even though they were painted a few hundred years ago.


4. Oil painting are more prestigious than a piece of photograph.

Oil paintings give you a tinge of prestige and status as compared to a printed photograph. Compared to an oil painting, a photo is very common. Can you imagine visitor giving your paintings a double-take when he sees a hand-painted portraiture gracing the wall of your living-room or your corporate office. If you want to elevate the status of your home or office, a well painted oil painting is definitely the best thing to hang on the walls. If you ever visited a posh hotel, you will find paintings hanging on the walls.


5. Oil paintings are very durable

Oil paintings are more “weatherproof” and more suitable to humid weathers like Singapore and UK

You want something that is waterproof that can withstand the high humidity of Singapore’s climate. Especially when you have paid so much money to get a portrait done, it makes sense to invest in a medium that not only can withstand the test of time, but also gives you an air of class.


6. Oil paintings as a gift speaks volumes of the bond between the giver and the recipient

​Oil painting portraits are perfect as a gift for your love ones especially for people who are really mean a lot to you. Commission an painting and give it as an exquisite gift for those special once-in-a-lifetime occasions like wedding party, newborn baby showers, honeymoon, etc.
