That’s what I was asking when I saw the February 28 post from artist David Gray in my inbox. I’ve heard of a lot of ways to transfer drawings, but oil? I had to follow up on that.

In short, an oil transfer is exactly what it sounds like: transferring a drawing from paper to canvas with oil paint.

I won’t bore you with a lot of description, because David posted a great video on YouTube. You can watch it below or read the blog post and watch the video here.
