Firstly, before you buy that piece of oil painting you should know what level of that painter is. As what it says in the Chinese painting: the painter can be read through his painting. The same theory can be used in oil painting. You can learn the painter’s foundation, attitude, as well as how much does he like oil painting. You can roughly feel the feelings of the painter’s creations. The foundation of a good piece of oil painting should be perfect.
Secondly, good works should have an independent voice, an independent creative style and a unique expression way. It can convey information itself rather than relying on introduction or background reference. The works should express in a clever way rather than imposing extra visual ideas.
Thirdly, good works can provide you with more cultural sense of belonging and more culture elements, rather than subjection to commerce or custom-made on account of inimitable culture. Excessive copy of foreign style and blindly compromising with commerce cannot survive in a long-term.
Fourthly, the artist should be quiet, insisted, intelligent and serious. He or she needs inner insistence and be firm to the art. The artist should insist what he or she thinks regardless the external groundless talk.
