Fat over lean

DEFINITION

A rule of thumb for painters in oil, it is a term referring to the building up of layers in an oil painting and the fact it is essential that each layer has more oil then the one below it. The reason is that as the paint dries, the top layers are flexible enough to accommodate shrinkage and settling without cracking. Source: Ralph Mayer, "A Dictionary of Art Terms and Techniques"
