Oh to be in the cool blue ocean! 🐬🌊💙

On Tuesdays, we wear pink. 🌸🌷💕 Light Magenta, Brilliant Magenta, Radiant Red, Ash Pink - a Rose by any other name would smell as sweet!

Gliding into a new week....🏄‍♂️ #handmade #handfinished #handcrafted

Our first #studiosundays for 2018 is in perfect spirit with the season. While spending time in the great outdoors this summer, why not engage a spot of plein air painting? Our premium birch ply plein air panels are made to traditional landscape proportions, as well as being lightweight and rigid. Available in a range of finishes and cottons/linens. Visit our online store or contact us for a custom quote. ⠀ •⠀ Image: Perle Fine plein air painting. ⠀ •⠀ #studiosundays #pleinairpainting #landscapepainting #perlefine

If you can't stand all the humidity and need some drying oils, this here is the product for you! Gamblin's linseed oil-based reduced Stand Oil is thicker than cold pressed or alkalai refined oils, with the advantage of minimal yellowing properties. It's perfect for glazing and eliminating brush marks.⠀ •⠀ Shop is open now until 4pm - 63 Weston Street, Brunswick or online 24/7. ⠀ • ⠀ #gamblincolors @gamblincolors #standoil #linseedoil #paintmediums #annpeebles #ican'tstandtherain⠀
