Oil Color

In the tradition of the masters, M. Graham artists’ oil color is made with pure walnut oil for its brilliance, clarity, texture, and resistance to fading and yellowing. Working in small batches, we craft oil colors true to the roots of Renaissance painting — delicately free-flowing, solvent-free, with no fillers or additives.


M. Graham watercolors are made with Northwest blackberry honey, recalling the practice of early artists who drew from nature for their materials as well as their subjects. This traditional base creates willing watercolors ready for your brush and yielding even, fluid washes.


M. Graham acrylic artists’ color are made with the same devotion and craftmanship that we use in our traditional media: small batches, pure quality ingredients, and the highest concentrations of color possible.


M. Graham gouache is made in the time-honored tradition of binding pigment with pure honey and gum arabic, just as it was for Dürer and Boucher. Providing superior coverage and a creamy application, M. Graham fine art gouache delivers lightfast color designed for your permanent artwork.

Artist Mediums

At M. Graham & Co we are dedicated to providing a traditional approach to painting while limiting the toxicological and environmental restraints long associated with solvents found in artist materials.  This holds true for our mediums as well and that is why we only offer four mediums; walnut oil and walnut alkyd medium for our oil paints and gloss and matte medium for our acrylics.  They are made to augment the special nature of our oil and acrylic colors.
