Watercolor Wednesday!

20% OFF M. Graham Watercolors - M. Graham has created a watercolor with exceptional amounts of pigment in an old fashioned binding medium of pure gum arabic and natural blackberry honey. The result is watercolor of extraordinary strength that is easily diluted for smooth, controlled washes and deeper "darks". Alive with strength and intensity, watercolor made with honey absorbs moisture from the air, preventing hardening on the palette or in the tube.

Ox Gall Watercolor Medium Hampton Photo, Arts and Framing Bridgehampton, NY.Buy 1, Get 1 FREE Ox Gall - A few drops of Ox Gall are added to a jar of water and this is used to dilute the watercolor. Ox Gall is also used on very hard sized papers to reduce surface tension. If a paper is resisting a watercolor wash, leave it to dry before covering the paper with the diluted Ox Gall. Once this is dry the painting can be continued as normal.

20% OFF Fredrix Watercolor canvas Pads - Fredrix Watercolor canvas is a revolutionary new watercolor surface made of 100% Cotton. The unique texture of an all natural woven material, in combination with a proprietary patented specially formulated acid-free coating, delivers a unique new watercolor painting experience and distincitve look that can only be captured on canvas.

Fripit in the News
Publication: The East Hampton Press & The Southampton Press
by Pat Rogers

"Mixing fun with a serious purpose was the idea behind the creation of the Hamptons Art website, www.fripit.com. Website administrator Ben McHugh, who enjoys the process of setting up websites, started Fripit three years ago when artist friends began asking him to design sites for them. In order to avoid being swamped with lots of favors for friends, Mr. McHugh said he’d make one website and post whatever anyone gave him there.

At first, Fripit was the cyberspace home for artists without websites, people who felt thwarted by technology that seemed difficult to master. Now most of Fripit’s artists have their own websites but still want to be part of a website group."

Hampton Photos Arts Hosts ‘The Thank You Art Show’

Hampton Photos Arts Hosts ‘The Thank You Art Show’

Thank You Art Show by Hampton Photo ArtsEast Hampton - The “Thank You Art Show” held this past weekend at Ashawagh Hall in East Hampton was an opportunity for Hampton Photos Arts (located in Bridgehampton) to acknowledge and thank the artists who have used their services throughout the year, and who are loyal customers to the business that can be an artist’s best friend.

Owner of Hampton Photo Arts David McHugh, along with his son Ben McHugh, coordinated the exhibition, which featured one piece each from approximately 100 artists who have not only relied on the myriad of materials an artist may require such as stretchers, film, paintbrushes, portfolios, computer imagery, and frames available at Hampton Photo Arts, but the skills and experience both David and Ben have rendered to artists who work in the photographic/digital medium in particular.

Well known as a printing resource for conventional film and digital prints, Ben handles much of the framing requirements, and has been known to make himself available to assist artists in their sometimes ‘offbeat’ requirements, and certainly when the pressure is on for upcoming shows.

Making Encaustic Medium
I fell in love with encaustic paintings the first time I saw one hanging. There was just something about the work... The luminosity, the transparency, the brilliance. It was unlike anything that I had ever seen before. I knew I had to try it and once I did, I was hooked.
