Art suppliers:

  • Zecchi(Florence): Of special interest are their sable brushes, sun-thickened oil and dry pigments.
  • Cornelissen (London): My favorite bristle brush suppliers.
  • New York Central (NYC): Good all-around supplier, I like their sketchbooks a lot (Kunst & Papier No. 1003 13).
  • Sinopia (San Francisco): Kremer supplier on the west coast (see below).
  • Kremer (Munich and NYC): Most of the good supplies in other shops come from here. You save a lot buying from the Munich shop.
  • Da Kat Windmill (Holland, 30 mins from Amsterdam): Old windmill where they still grind pigments with wind power. Great pigments for sale in the small shop in the back.
  • Dick Blick (Online) Good online supplier, the ‘Silver’ brushes are really nice to work with, as are their name-brand bristles.
  • Ray Mar art (Online) I use their plein air panels from time to time.
  • New Traditions (Online) More excellent artist panels.
  • Blue Ridge Oil Paint (Online) Very good hand-ground oil colors, especially the cadmiums.
  • M. Graham Artist’s Colors and Mediums (Online) Excellent artist’s oil paints, ground in walnut oil.
