Oluf Jensen var en dygtig akvarelmaler og raderer.
Hans motiver var mest blomster og landskaber, folsomt
opfattede og gengivet med en haeldning mod det dekorative.
Navnlig farveraderingerne af enkelte blomster, af hvilke
nogle udsendtes af Den danske Radeerforening og Selskabet
for grafisk Kunst, blev populaere.
