Oil paint made with walnut oil has been preferred by artists for centuries.  It provides rich, vibrant color that is naturally more alive and brilliant. Free flowing and slower drying, our oil color enables delicate passages of finely blended color that will retain its brilliance over time.

M Graham color is made in small batches. Every one is different. They all have their own personality. They’re kind of like children that way. M Graham patiently nurtures their potential, applying just the perfect amount of mill pressure and speed to coax the optimum pigment load and dispersion. This is the work of craftsman. No amount of high-volume industrial standardization can match this level of care.

M Graham uses walnut oil because of its unique refractive index and non-yellowing nature produces color that is more naturally alive and brilliant. In addition walnut oil increases the amount of pigment in each color, resulting in extraordinary richness, color saturation, brilliance and tinting strength. They are also free of solvents and harsh odors.

M Graham selects the finest example of every pigment from sources all over the world. To most, this means they are the highest grade and the most beautiful of their kind. And after going to such lengths to find them, they wouldn’t dream of diluting them. No fillers or extenders are used in their color.
