Who is Michael Harding?
An artist and a painter, Michael Harding began making oil colours in 1982, whilst studying Fine Art.
Inspired by Rembrandt's paintings in the National Gallery, Harding had attempted to recreate the Dutch artist’s paint effects and colours in his own work. Realising that no existing oil colours would enable him to do this, he set out on a mission to produce an oil paint that was of the same quality and consistency as that used by the Old Masters.
Intensive research and experimentation resulted in the eventual production of Michael Harding’s Artists Oil Colour, which he went on to supply to the Royal College of Art and the Victoria & Albert Museum. Today, Michael Harding counts a number of renowned artists amongst the fans of his oil colour, including David Hockney, John D. Edwards and the late Sir Howard Hodgkin.
