Michael Harding's Artists Oil Colour Chart
Michael Harding 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. Harding's past as an artist and painter compelled him to want 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 it compromises on quality. Harding totally refuses to do this : 'Why make something exceptional and then dilute it?'
Harding will not claim that his paints will turn you into a great painter, but he does promise they will have a profound effect on your work. Your colours will be stronger and richer, and you will find the texture of the paint incomparable. You will love working with them.
