If you recently tried to order one of our unique glass mini-muller and grinding plate sets but found them out of stock, rejoice! We have some more, and are happy to offer them on line for you. The ground glass surface of the 4″x4″ plates and the approximately 1 cm2 working surface of the mini-mullers are perfect for working with small amounts of pigments, in, for example, manuscript illumination. See Anna’s making egg tempera demonstration on our YouTube channel for a demonstration of this set in use.
Linda takes to the studio to demonstrate making three different paints – watercolor, gouache, and egg tempera – from one pigment. Our Alizarin Crimson, a synthesis of the natural pigment from the madder plant, is used to make three different kinds of paints. More demonstration videos coming soon!
My painting friend Domingo and I took advantage of a very low morning spring tide last week to go paint at the beach, and we decided to make a paint-along video for you to enjoy. Some horseback riders came by! Please feel free to watch and make art based on this scene, or just enjoy the view and sound of the waves. If you do paint, please show us your work! Hope your spring is beautiful! – Linda
We hosted a paint-along for the Plein Air Live! conference in April 2021, using video we’d shot near sunset at Loon Point, South of Santa Barbara, CA. Enjoy!
