Experience Gamblin...


Gamblins’ site is an eye-dazzling information-bank. Mesmerizing videos showcase the process of luscious paint being made – a mix of chemistry and intuition. I found their Experience Color page informative and inspiring. It links to 15 entries that explore color theory, the behaviors of modern and mineral pigments and the various color palettes an artist can use for specific paint applications.

Exploring Color Palettes page highlights 6 different color palette arrangements, for various approaches to painting. Among them, my favorite palettes are the Transparent Glaze Palette and the Old Master’s Palette – palettes I was introduced to while in art school by a deeply passionate painter and generous professor, Dominic Cretara. Dominic was a hyper-informed Italian painting professor with at least 50 years experience studying the work of the Old Masters. The exploring palettes web page further explores the colors used in each palette, by linking to pages with color samples that illustrate the transparency and depth of each color.

As a traveler who never leaves home without a bag full of art supplies, I also enjoyed reading their Tips for Traveling with Art Supplies page. They give tips about what to say if you are traveling with paint, and supply a document you can use to prove to the TSA the flashpoint of each pigment. I will be printing out a copy in advance and storing it with my passport so that I am prepared for my next trip abroad.

Gamblin Artist Colors website is an excellent resource for painters and printmakers to learn about the quality and the properties of Gamblins products. Their mission it to lead oil painting and printmaking into the future, using the highest quality pigments and binders, while remaining true to historic practices, with a goal of creating products that are safer and more permanent.
