FREE DEMO: Painting with SENNELIER Oils with AARON HOERBER. May 6, 2017. 2pm-3:30pm

PAINTING with SENNELIER ARTIST OILS

FREE DEMO!
Saturday, May 6, 2017
2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

In 1887, Gustave Sennelier established himself as a colour merchant on the Quai Voltaire in Paris. Sennelier's passion for colour chemistry and focused pigment research led to the development of a distinctive oil colour manufacturing process that has been employed for generations. The sensuous pigments have a unique buttery texture, a consistency originally developed for the expressive style of the Impressionist painters who frequented the Sennelier store in the 19th century. Sennelier's meticulous work, his vast knowledge of pigments, his talents as a colourist, and collaboration with Cezanne and other Masters gave rise to a palette of oil colours that quickly became the standard of quality. Favoured by some of the greatest artists (Monet, Gauguin, Matisse, Picasso, Bonnard, Modigliani, Chagall, Ernst, Hockney), Sennelier oils hang in the world's most prestigious museums.

Today, Sennelier's classic palette is expanding with 50 new, original shades that encompass contemporary trends and tastes. These colours, still as smooth and luminous as ever, offer an updated texture with firmer body to accommodate the requirements of 21st century artists. The range of finest artists' oil colours includes 144 colours.
