Michael Harding Artists' Oil Colour 40ml


Fine artists' oil colours. Handmade, rich and vibrant hues with the inclusion of traditional, sought after colours such as Vermillion and Lapis Lazuli.


Michael Harding Says:

I make my paints using techniques which date back to the days of the old Masters. There is a straightforward reason for this steady process. As an artist and a painter, I want to create colours that are true and vibrant as well as beautiful and durable.

The higher the pigment content of an Oil Paint, the greater the resistance it has to fading. Nearly all manufacturers use fillers to extend the volume of the oil paint. It may increase profit, but it compromises the quality.

I do not claim that my paints will turn you into a great master, but I can promise they will have a profound effect on your work. Your colours will be more durable, more vibrant and more abundant. You will find the texture of the paint incomparable. You will fall in love while working with my artist materials.

I make my Artist Oil Paints with colour intensities that artists experienced before the 1840s. This was when the invention of the collapsible tube led to mass production and gradual dilution of quality. Mass-produced paints of today are pale imitations of the colours that artists before the 1840s were able to either make themselves or purchase from a colour man. The main criteria of these colourmen were the quality of the paint and not undercutting the competition.

For over 160 years there has been a steady decline and serious lack of interest in the true nature and potential of the remarkable Oil Paint medium. The result is that very few artists have an understanding of how to paint a picture that will not deteriorate over time.

The majority of artists who try my paints for the first time are shocked to realise they had previously been painting with muted colours – this raises questions as to the permanence of their previous works. 

I can say with complete confidence that not only will an artist’s work last longer, but they will enjoy a much greater empathy with their paint. Michael believes the artist should respond passionately to the materials with which they work.
