Painting in the broadest sense of the word means to apply pigment suspended in a medium to a support. The medium traditionally could be water, acrylic or oil. But any liquid could be used to create a painting. The support could also be any surface that the paint is applied too. From a rigid support like board to a flexible canvas. We stock the all the widely available trusted brands like Windsor and Newton, Lukas, Daler Rowney to the lesser spotted Rembrandt and Amsterdam. We did not forget our excellent local producers like Dala, Zellen and Schub. With our wide range of Water colours, Oil paint and Acrylics, we supply all the tools you would need to apply and manipulate the paint to envision your expression like brushes, pallette knives and mediums.
