M. Graham believes that the best paint makes better paintings. Consequently, the best ingredients make better paint and this video explains the difference M. Graham’s ingredients make in setting their fine paints apart. Whether it’s the walnut oil, the honey used in their watercolor, or the high solid acrylic emulsion, M. Graham vehicles are chosen because they are qualitatively different: In terms of their appearance. In terms of how much pigment they can carry. In terms of how they feel and respond on the artist’s brush.
