OIL PAINTING

Oil paint has perhaps made the largest contribution to the development of art as a visual form. As one of the great classic media, it has been used as far back as the 13th century and has displayed magnificent durability. Thanks to the incredible world we live in, we all get to experience this amazing medium together!


    Van Gosh Your Way To An Oil Painting Masterpiece!

    Featured Medium VAN GOGH OIL COLOR STARTER SET | Retail $19.95

    This 6-color set features 20ml tubes of assorted Van Gogh oils which are well known for their purity of color, buttery consistency and dependable working qualities. These pure-pigment paints are particularly easy to mix and work with because all colors in the range have virtually the same degree of gloss and viscosity, and require about the same amount of time to dry. The set contains: cadmium red azo, cadmium yellow azo, madder lake deep, ultramarine deep, viridian and zinc white.

    Featured Canvas HAHNEMUHLE OIL PAPER BLOCK 7” x 9 ½” | Retail $13.95

    Artists set the highest standards for the property and pureness of papers and boards — the basis of their work. Hahnemühle has been fulfilling these requirements with its products for over 420 years. For artists with good taste: nothing is better for presenting oil and acrylic paints than Hahnemühle Oil and Acrylic Pads. A canvas-like structure prevents colors from being completely absorbed, so there's no bleedthrough. The paper's glossy linen finish helps colors retain their high luminosity with no halo effect. Colors can be mixed on the paper and no oil patches will appear.

    Add-On Medium BONUS ITEM! WEBER ODORLESS TURPENOID
