I’m happy to announce the latest addition to my Oil Paint range – Pyrrole Red
I wanted to add an affordable red to my product line that compliments my current reds and provides another level of depth in the family of MH reds. While my first passion is pigments from the period of our Old Masters time, today’s modern made pigments offers us yet another level of discovery and enjoyment. I feel Pyrrole Red is such a colour, an affordable, highly lightfast vivid red.
My paints are made by hand, using techniques which date back to the days of the Old Masters. There is a very simple reason for this painstaking process. As an artist and painter I wanted to create colours that were true and vibrant, and paint which was beautiful and durable.
The greater the pigment content of a paint the greater the resistance it has to fading. Nearly all manufacturers use various fillers to extend the volume of the oil paint — it may increase profits, but compromises on quality. I refuse to do this — why make something exceptional and then dilute it?
