Charvin Winter Painting Contest Winners

 

Check out the talented winners of the 2013 Charvin Winter Painting Contest!

Our most recent Charvin Painting Contest -- for the winter of early 2013 -- was undeniably a resounding success! We received so many amazing entries from our talented artist friends and customers that picking winners was incredibly difficult. But after multiple rounds of voting, we've narrowed the choices down to the following amazing entries!

 


First Place Winner

"Maiko Satohana"
by Phil Couture

"I have used many brands of oil paint over the years, but Charvin is unmatched. The vibrancy and flow of the paint on the canvas is astounding and the range of colors they offer is fantastic. Naples Yellow is a personal favorite, because of it's rich, buttery consistency straight from the tube. I recommend Charvin products to all of my artist friends, as I know they will not be disappointed."


 

Second Place Winner

"American Jugs"
by Marcel Franquelin

"Colors! Unusual colors!! Charvin gave me a new 'horizon' for my palette! From wild and daring to settled. Also it is probably the only brand whose color labels on the tube are an accurate representation of the paint inside, no need to look around quickly and open the tube in the store just to make sure!"

 

Third Place Winner

"Grassy Waters-Winter Morning"
by Patricia Maguire

"I have been using Charvin Oil Paints for the past 2 years and recommend them to my students. The range of colors is unsurpassed by any other brand, and I love the convenient large size and the clarity of the packaging when making a selection. The colors go on creamy and supple, and dry with luminosity. Some colors have become personal favorites and form part of my permanent color palette: Green shade, Lagoon Blue, Naples Yellow, Carmine Red, and Payne's Gray. The pre-mixed pastel colors are a joy to take to my Plein Air painting sessions, as they save time when setting up. I am hooked!"
