Another example would be certain types of medium. I have a couple of different kinds in my stash of materials that I use and absolutely love. But I don't really divulge that information to just anyone. Gotta keep some of it a secret.
But I will say this, lately I've been shifting to a different brand of oils, and I have to give Williamsburg Handmade Oils at least my word-of-mouth endorsement. They aren't the only brand I use, but right now they are my favorite, and it became official as I finished this painting recently:
|Woman in a Red Headscarf|
oil on canvas
So, if you're an artist looking for an awesome vermilion, here it is. And if you're just looking for a great brand of professional oils, give Williamsburg a shot. Some of the colors have a long consistency, and they won't dry out on you if you're the type to store your paint in containers for later use.
Okay, done with my commercial. Happy painting, y'all!
