RGM PALETTE KNIVES with RIVE GAUCHE OIL PAINTS
on MASTERPIECE CANVAS



(CLICK HERE TO VISIT OUR FACEBOOK COVER VIDEO)


It was a great afternoon on our sales floor, as Jim Minet
educated and entertained a large crowd of customers.  He
used RGM Palette Knives with Sennelier Rive Gauche Oils
on a Masterpiece Canvas.

The group learned a lot watching Jim at work and asking lots
and lots of questions about the paints, the knives, the canvas
and mostly the "how to" stuff - working with knives.

Metallic Oil Colors: Copper, Rich Gold, Pale Gold, and Silver



Kit King

How do you capture the glistening of water? You could paint a reflection, but it still won’t reflect the sun like water. It won’t catch your eye, or dance with you like water.

The real metal pigment in the Silver emulates the reflective nature of water. When light hits the painting, the little beads of water glimmer and the painting comes to life- suddenly there is movement and breath.
I opted not to use white for the highlights, but rather thick strokes of Silver, which protrudes further than the rest of the flat surface, so that the raised areas catch the light and reflect a vibrant, specular highlight that gives the illusion of an ultra-bright white. Given the reflective nature of the Silver, the painting shifts in value as you walk by it – unlike traditional grey which remains fixed – the painting moves with lights and darks according to your position to it and the light in the room, and a little dance happens between the subject of the painting and the viewer.

This movement is an important key to my work. I’m always looking for new ways to step away from traditional fixed and stagnant portrait painting to give breath to my art, and push the boundaries of oil painting as a medium. The metal pigment series of oil paints by Gamblin is just one way I chose to explore this.

Loss of a VENERABLE ART SUPPLY STORE



would like to you to support the brick and mortar - retail artist supply stores.  Please read and learn...


THE DEATH OF A VENERABLE PARIS ART STORE SHOWS THE LATIN QUARTER'S DAYS ARE NUMBERED

If you’ve ever made, or dreamed of making, a trip to Paris, chances are the Latin Quarter was on your list of places to see.
Located across the 5th and 6th arrondissements on the Left Bank, it’s famously steeped in culture, once home to painters and philosophers, and frequented by generations of students attending the Sorbonne. In the 1920s and 1930s, Hemingway haunted its bars and bookstores, and in May 1968, it was the locus of the student protests that racked the city.
But like bohemian enclaves all around the world, this legendary neighborhood is undergoing dramatic gentrification. The latest victim of the trend is a 157-year-old fine arts supply store that has been selling colorful paints to artsy customers since 1861.
