RGH

All my posts are behind right now—-but give me some time and I’ll catch up.  This one should have been put out there late in the summer.

I’ve been purchasing paint from RGH paints in Albany, independent owned, makes his own paint….and the reds are out of this world.  The only additive is the stuff that keeps it from being too “ropey”.

The folks there are soooooooo incredibly patient and helpful—-you can take a canvas and test out colors (I did –comparing to swatches of other paints I use).  They encourage people to come and learn about the paint-making process and want us to be satisfied with their product. The prices are great if you tube the paint yourself (I love doing it—very satisfying and there are tons of videos on Youtube to show you how. You can look at them online, bu† if you’re in this area, I recommend you get directions to the place online (or the phone number), it’s hard to find/see from outside.  Tell him I sent you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The only two colors I’ll caution are naples yellow (get the lemon ochre instead) and cerulean blue (a little dull).
