40% off M. Graham & Co Oils!
We set out to make a paint Da Vinci would use. This is it! In the tradition of the masters, M. Graham artists’ oil color is made with pure walnut oil for its brilliance, clarity, texture, and resistance to fading and yellowing. Working in small batches, we craft oil colors true to the roots of Renaissance painting: delicately free-flowing, solvent-free, and with no fillers or additives. With the exceptionally high pigment loads in M. Graham artists’ oil colors, your work will naturally feel more alive and vibrant, imbued with rich, lustrous color for years to come.
Why Walnut Oil?
Centuries after they were painted in walnut oil, works of art by Raphael, Dürer and Da Vinci still retain their luster and richness. Why? Walnut oil has a unique refractive index. Colors ground in this fine oil are more jewel-like and bright. Using walnut oil allows us to increase the amount of pigment of each color, resulting in paints with the highest possible mass tone and tint strength—and paintings saturated with extraordinary color.
The Renaissance masters didn’t have to use solvents—and neither do you. We dedicated ourselves to creating solvent-free artists’ oil colors 25 years ago and we’re proud to stay true to that commitment. Avoiding solvents is better for artists, paintings, students, our employees, and the environment.
40% off M. Graham & Co Acrylics!
M. Graham acrylic artists’ color are made with the same devotion and craftsmanship that we use in our traditional media: small batches, quality ingredients, and the highest concentrations of color possible. The flow and delicacy of a gouache, with colors you’d expect from oil. The result is fine art acrylic paint with bold vitality and a creamy delicacy of touch that offers you a world of opportunity — from fine detail to broad, full-brushed applications.
High-Solid Acrylic Emulsion
At the heart of our fine arts acrylic color is our unique, pure acrylic emulsion containing 60% solids—instead of the usual 45% found in artists’ color. We don’t use fillers, wax, retardants, bulking agents or whiteners.
40% off M. Graham & Co Watercolors!
You’re inspired by the world around you — so are our paints. M. Graham watercolors are made with Northwest blackberry honey, recalling the practice of early artists who drew from nature for their materials as well as their subjects. This traditional base creates willing watercolors ready for your brush and yields even, fluid washes. Honey also allows for stronger, truer colors. With a complete range of pleasing pigments — from delicate tints to dark, concentrated colors — you’ll discover more color possibilities with M. Graham watercolors!
Honey… in watercolor?
Artists’ use of honey in watercolors can be traced back centuries. Today, modern watercolorists are rediscovering the many advantages of honey-based paints. Thanks to honey’s natural properties, we can avoid artificial humectants and preservatives in our paints, instead infusing more color. Honey’s viscosity offers artists a smooth, easy application. And, because of honey, our watercolors dilute easily—even after months of disuse—and resist hardening on the palette or in the tube.
40% off M. Graham & Co Gouache!
Discover the best gouache you’ll ever use! M. Graham gouache is made in the time-honored tradition of binding pigment with pure honey and gum arabic, just as it was for Dürer and Boucher. Providing superior coverage and a creamy application, M. Graham fine art gouache delivers lightfast color designed for your permanent artwork. With no added chalk or white, you’re in control of creating the opacity you want—whether a soft, pearlescent glow or colors that pop with lively radiance.
