Schmincke Mussini is a beautiful oil paint, made with natural resin. They are exceptional in their colours, especially their transparent colours and earth tones. Great even drying time across the range and wonderful feel (and smell) to them. Can of course be intermixed with other brands. A beautiful paint. Mussini website. Buy at Jackson's.
Beautiful rich colours made by Michael Harding who is always ready with advice, help and anecdotes. Lovely paint, buttery but not stiff with some extraordinary rich colours. For no good reason I really like the 60ml tubes (also comes in 40ml, and 225ml), probably because they are less fiddly. Fantastic quality. Michael Harding Website. Buy at Jackson's.
Belle Arti is an Italian brand of art surfaces. I love their linen and wooden panels. Their oil primed linen is beautifully smooth and non absorbent. At Jackson's you can buy pre-stretched canvas as well as rolls and MDF boards. Their poplar multi-ply panels ("gesso panels") are very absorbent but beautifully smooth. Belle Art website.
Jackson's Premium Cotton Canvas Art Boards. These boards are great value and good quality. Great for quick studies, workshops, working while travelling or just a more economical solution.
