New Paint ....

New Paint ...

I'm like a kid in a candy store with some two new paint brands to try.

I normally use Old Holland, Williamsburg & Gamblin. The next few months I will be trying Blue Ridge also. 

Thus far I am very taken with the Blue Ridge paints. The cadmium vermillion is closer in color to Williamsburg's cadmium red light, so I will have the excuse to also try Blue Ridge's cadmium red medium.

I'm really interested to see if the walnut oil in the M.Graham makes a difference to bonding also to the clarity of the cobalt and titanium white.

Many of these only show up as the paint ages, but after my 2007-10 drama with safflower oil paints, I keep as traditional as possible in paint and medium formulation. Keep an eye out for updates as I test and incorporate into my daily practice....
