2015 Charvin Winter Contest Winners Gallery
1st Place: 'Tenderness' by Veronica Winters  of State College, PA First Place Winner
by Veronica Winters of State College, PA
"I paint with Charvin 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 of for the underpainting. These colors are wonderful for beginners and intermediate students getting a great value for the money spent on larger tubes."
2nd Place: 'First Chukker' by  Len Jagoda of Waverly Hall, GA Second Place Winner
"First Chukker"
by Len Jagoda of Waverly Hall, GA
"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 then I would pay from local stores, and from one convenient 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."
3rd Place: 'Gustavo Pet Portrait' by Catalina Diaz of Clawson, Michigan Third Place Winner
"Gustavo Pet Portrait"
by Catalina Diaz of Clawson, Michigan
"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."
