First manufactured in 1982, Michael Harding oils take inspiration from the vibrancy and surface of Rembrandt's works. Driven by his experiences as an artist, Harding set out to create a professional quality oil colour with the same consistency and quality as those used by the Old Masters.
All of Michael Harding's handmade oil paints have incredible tint, concentration and saturation power unlike any other oil paint. Every colour in the range is handmade, using the finest pigments and oils and is totally free of fillers, drying agents or extenders. In demand from institutions like the Royal College of Art and the Victoria and Albert Museum, Michael Harding Oils are the pinnacle of quality.
Now available in 87 colours in 40ml tubes

These paints are packed with pigments and the colours dance on my canvas. What a joy to use Lynn (Frome) on 15 Jan 2019
I've been painting for 14 years, and Michael Harding's paints are some of the best I've used. I love the unbleached titanium, king's blue light, lead tin yellow, and the lead white. I love the consistency out of the tube, it doesn't even really need medium. Thank you for offering such a high quality paint! Jenedy Paige (USA) on 24 Jul 2019
These colours are simply delicious, both on the palette and on the canvas! I was on the hunt for a better brand, and found Michael Harding, and now I am hooked. The range of colours is great, each colour is brilliant and has a consistency which I think is just right. The amount of oil is not too much, nor too little. Combined with high quality brushes, painting with MH is simply a joy! :-) Adele (Askøy, Norway) on 21 Jul 2019
