Quotation

Traveller,
           
The Secret of Oyl Painting, consists in using Colours that are Ground with Oyl of Nut, or Linseed, and with these you paint upon a Cloth, which has first been primed with drying Colours, such as Cerus, Red Oaker, and Ombre, mingled together. This manner of painting, makes the Colours show more Lively than any other, and seems to give your Picture more Vivacity and Softness.
