Art and Artisan
Editorial and Featured Paintings By Murray William Cole Ince
Winsor and Newton’s ‘Artisan’ water-mixable oil paint was, for me, it is no exaggeration to say, a life changing discovery. In the early 1990s my wife became asthmatic curtailing my work in traditional oils as the thinning spirits, Distilled spirit of turpentine and White (mineral spirits) would set off an asthma attack. ‘Artisan’ was launched in 1998 and I immediately went and bought a few tubes to see how it differed from the traditional oils that I was used to and to my delight it seemed no different at all! Now having used it for 20 years I can say that ‘Artisan’ oils perform no differently to the traditional oils that I previously used and everything that you can do with traditional oils can be done with ‘Artisan’ the only differences are in favour of ‘Artisan’! You clean brushes and equipment with a little soap and water, you can thin the paint just using water and it has no obnoxious odours or fumes and is far more environmentally friendly than its traditional counterpart.
Art and Artisan
Now Available, some of my paintings as limited edition digital (giclee) prints. All are printed on a top grade professional 385gsm canvas that is manufactured with a high quality, 100% pure cotton canvas base, coated with a new advanced technology micro-porous coating. This water resistant, lustre finish canvas produces true fine art reproductions with a very high resolution.
Each print is produced by an accredited fine art printer and member of the Fine Art Trade Guild. Only prints by members of the Guild conforming to Guild Standards can use the Guild logo. The Guild sets standards for print publishing in order to protect the interests of the public and maintain confidence in the publishing of fine art.
Each print comes with a signed by me, Murray William Cole Ince, numbered and dated Certificate of Authenticity as well as the print having been signed by and numbered by my own hand. Please visit my shop to view paintings available as Limited edition prints and the numbers of the individual editions.
Over the coming weeks I will be stocking my on-line shop with many paintings and will be gradually introducing many goodies including greetings cards, limited edition Giclee prints and Winsor and Newton art products especially the ‘Artisan’ range of water-mixable oil paints and associated products.
