M. Graham Oil Color
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.
We chose to build our oil paint with this oil because its unique refractive index and non-yellowing nature produces color that is more naturally alive and brilliant. In addition walnut oil allows us to increase the amount of pigment in each color, resulting in extraordinary richness, color saturation, brilliance and tinting strength.
Our commitment to the artist extends to their environment. At M. Graham, we have freed ourselves from solvents in our work environment. You can free your studio of dangerous solvents as well. Using walnut oil to clean brushes is a natural way to remove color without creating a solvent hazard.
We spend hours milling our colors to coax the highest pigment loads into our paints. Compare us. We believe you will agree, M. Graham makes better color.
At M. Graham, we’re all about color.
Born from our love of the Renaissance masters, we’re dedicated to making long-lasting artists’ color that’s intensely, truly beautiful. We load our paint paste with the highest pigment loads possible and apply traditional milling techniques to achieve outstanding tinting strength and mass tone in all of our fine arts colors.
Richer, More Vibrant Color
Comparing M. Graham paints shows the difference—our colors are more brilliant, and more vibrant.
For our side-by-side color comparisons, we mix a tablespoon of white with a half-teaspoon of color. We make what we call “draw downs,” and we always put our color on the left, and the competitor’s color on the right.
What we find time and again is that no other paint offers the same level of pigment as ours. But don’t take our word for it. See the M. Graham color difference for yourself!
