"Le Grand Renaud"
by Marcel Franquelin - Monmouth, NJ
"Through the years, I've used many different brands of oil paints. Some are too oily, some too thick, or weak in pigment. I worked in a very traditional, realistic manner, and therefore I plan my work and my palette quite carefully. I do not like surprises interfering in my painting strategies. Soho is definitely among the oil paints I love using, as it is reliable and consistent."
