Oil paintings on paper.

One of the questions asked about painting wax and/or oil paint on paper
is 'will it last'? These few examples below indicate that there is no
reason for it not to last. All substrates (painting surfaces) have their strengths and their weakness.

One of my Grandfathers painting's.
Oil painted on 'starched' watercolour paper, painted before 1940. The starch was the primer for the paper, painted in very thin layers of oil paint, an excellent example of how paper can be used for oil and of course, he lived at a time when it would have been the way of doing things - painted on paper before canvas.

More images of his work are on my personal site.
 

Hilaire Hiler
Painted much of his work using wax and oil paint, often making solutions for his glazing, he worked mostly on paper, this image was painted before 1959

He was a proponent of Structuralism and wrote a booklet 'Notes on the Techniques of Painting' his colour wheel relates to the colours of emotions.
