Michael Harding Oil Paint 40ml


Michael Harding Oil Colours are regarded among the finest oil paints available to artists today. The colours are completely free of fillers and utilise top-quality pigments.

First manufactured in 1982, Michael Harding Artists’ Oil Colours are popular with some of the world’s finest artists, including David Hockney, Chris Ofili, and the late Howard Hodgkin.

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 it compromises on quality. I totally refuse to do this. Why make something exceptional and then dilute it?

I will not claim that my paints will turn you into a great painter, but I can 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.

Try them. You will be amazed

Sennelier Ink Brush Pen

These Brush Pens have real synthetic fibre brush tips! The innovation of the Sennelier Ink Brush Pens is to be equipped with a real brush tip made of real fibers. Thanks to these real fibres, the application of the colour is more fluid, constant and linear, taking advantage of the internal capillarity of the brush to facilitate the dispersion of the colour. In the same gesture, the artist can create extremely fine and very wide lines (up to 10mm) with a continuous flow of ink, by simply varying the pressure of the tip on the paper.

Pigment based and exclusive to Sennelier, it is environmentally friendly, which explains why there is no safety marking on the label. 24 of the 36 colours are from Sennelier’s “La Petite Aquarelle” range. This correspondence allows watercolourists and illustrators to harmoniously complete the details and highlights of their works in watercolour.
