2015 Charvin Winter Painting Contest Winners
Congrats to our Winners!
Our most recent Charvin Painting Contest- the 2015 Charvin Winter Painting Contest was unarguably a resounding success! We have received so many amazing entries from our talented artist friends and customers that picking winners was incredibly difficult. But after a couple of rounds of voting, we’ve picked through the all of the talented participants to the following amazing entries!
Announcing our Winners:
First Place Winner
“I paint with Charvin Extra Fine Oil Colors mixing them with a few other professional oil colors. While their transparency is great for glazing, they have a good tinting strength and I use these colors a lot for the underpainting. These colors are wonderful for beginners and intermediate students getting a great value for the money spent on larger tubes.”
Second Place Winner
“I have been working in pastels for some time; but not very long ago I decided to add oils as a medium. I firmly believe that it is wise to select only the best materials for any project. Why let hard work suffer from inferior paint? So when I made my decision, I decided to test paints from several of the most highly regarded paint manufacturers. Most retail art supply stores only carry paints from two or three companies and some are not ‘artist grade’. Jerry’s carries all of the best paints and at much more reasonable prices. This made it possible for me to try several paint companies at much more affordable prices than I would pay from local stores, and from one convenience source (saves shipping costs that way as well). My initial paint purchases from Jerry’s represented eight different companies, but all paints selected were each companies highest grade. Charvin Professional Extra Fine Oils are now my paint of choice.“
Third Place Winner
“Gustavo Pet Portrait”
“The creaminess that the poppy seed oil gives to Charvin Extra Fine Oil Colors makes them the best choice for glazing due to its high quality and high grade of pigmentation. That, added to the unique gallery of tones (brights, pales and burned), makes the whole process of painting a joyful experience. As always, Jerry’s has the best prices for them. So, some extra bucks in exchange for the experience, worth it. I highly recommend them.”
