Oil based painting techniques allowed artistes to realistically portray a play of light and shadow. Moving from egg tempera paints, which created solid colours, to oil-based paints allowed experimentation that was previously impossible. Oil based painting was more time consuming. To create the desired effect and artist would apply one light layer of green for example in the areas of the work using that colour. Oil dries slowly. When dry he would return to apply that same colour green over top of the previous green in areas where he wished the colour to be darker (perhaps an area that was more shadowed, typically). This process would repeat itself for all colours over an extended period of time usually.

Or the development of many abilities and skills. Belief that Human beings could improved their situation on earth. Inspired by Greek and Roman civilizations also based largely on humanism.
