Artist's description:

I recently went to the Meininger art supply store in Denver. (One great place!) While there, I learned of the Gamblin Torrit Grey Painting Competition.

Every spring, Gamblin Artists Colors collects a wealth of pigments from itsTorit® Air Filtration system. They filter the air around the areas where they handle dry pigments so that the workers are not exposed to pigment dust. Rather than sending any of the high quality, expensive pigments into the landfill, Gamblin paint makers recycle them into "Gamblin Torrit Grey."

The mix of pigments is different every year, so Torrit Grey is always unique and will never be repeated.

Torrit grey tubes are given out free to artists. By hosting the Torrit Grey Painting Competition, Robert Gamblin invites painters to experiment with the first dimension of Gamblin Color Space: VALUE. See how light & dark values can have as much impact as color.

This was my first effort, though it won't be my last, as I learned much from this exercise. The painting was 99.9 percent done with torrit grey and white. I think I dipped my brush in the black once, but didn't like it, so stuck with the grey and white.

The painting is signed and numbered on the back and signed on the front.
It is difficult to estimate shipping charges to all areas of the world, I have listed a price that for most locations should more than cover the charges. For those places where the price listed is significantly higher than the actual cost for shipping, handling, and customs charges, I will rebate that portion back to the buyer. My goal is to make sure that the buyer pays only the actual cost of shipping and customs, plus a $10 to $20 packing charge. (Depending on the size of the painting and the difficulty in packing it for shipment.) If you have any questions on shipping be sure to contact me.
