Usually, when we think of high quality fine art supply manufacturers we think of brands that are European and abroad such as Arches Paper, Holbien, and Sennelier. We forget that we have a leading oil painting brand right here in Portland, Oregon. Gamblin creates oil paints and all the oil mediums you could desire. Many oil painting artists have Linquin and/or Gamvar as staples in their painting supplies which are Gamblin brand oil mediums.
We love that they're a small company, committed to being kind and making the best colors and products so they don't waste any artist's precious time. We also love that they have many tips and techniques available on their website to help oil painting artists. Some of the topics include: cold wax medium, finding your happy medium, traveling with art materials, how to get paint out of brushes, how to store oil paintings, plus so much more. See all the topics at this link.
We have many oil painting art supplies at our discount art supply store. Make a no-contact, curbside pick-up order with us at this link.
