Paint Chemistry

Ask almost any artist what the basic make up of paint is and they will tell you; Pigment, vehicle and binder.   I talked to a student today and was asked how long it would take to find their style.  The answer is, as soon as you start painting what’s really inside.  I see so many young artist that are so wrapped up in technical aspects and being new and on the edge that they forget to add the most important element to their paint, EMOTION.  It’s the 4th part of paint and the most basic.paint
