First Place Winner
Winner: Christopher Clark of Wheat Ridge, CO
“Lord of the Rings Inspired: Gandalf and Bilbo Having Tea”
“As a professional fine artist, I use Lukas water mixable oil paints exclusively. I choose the water soluble version, not because I use water, but because they are faster drying and have less odor than traditional oils. I treat them like regular oils, using oil solvents and mediums, and they perform fabulously. The paints have a creamy, buttery feeling, and their color saturation is wonderful. They are also a very affordable brand for the quality they offer. I highly recommend Lukas products to any professional artist.”
Winner: Cande Sagan of Hammond, IN
“Centennial Park Repose”
“I decided to try Lukas 1862 oil paints because I trust the products that Jerry’s recommends. I love this line of oils and am adding them to my favorites. They performed to all my high standards for oil paints and i will continue to use them.”
Winner: Rich Alexander of Mt. Kisco, NY
“Winter Cat Boats”
“I love using Lukas 1862 oil paints because they flow easily and cover with one stroke of the brush. Lukas oil paint has great opacity and I’ve found the colors look richer as they age. I wouldn’t paint with anything else.”
