An Interview with Figure Painter and Classical Realist, Eric Bossik
Alyice:

Eric: Oils are the most powerful and versatile medium in existence. The strongest images in museums were executed with oil paints. Oil paint exceeds every other medium today with its range of value, chroma, hue, impasto, translucency, and opalescence. You can use oils to work wet-in-wet dry brush (scumbling) and glazing.
