    Answer: One difference between the two paintings is the Brushstrokes.


    In David's painting "Oath of the Horatii" he used smooth brushstrokes. By using smooth brushstrokes, this enhanced the quality of the figures and made them to look lifelike. This particular painting has a planned background that looks like a stage set.

    In Delacroix's painting "Liberty Leading the People" he used an expressive brushstroke. His expressive brushstrokes added drama to his paintings. He used bright colors in his paintings and added pigment throughout each one.
