Artists Oil Paints at Discount Prices

Artist Oil Paints became the most popular painting medium during the 15th Century, replacing Tempera almost completely by the Rennaisance. The advantage of slow drying time and the ability to create special effects unreachable by previous painters made the great artwork of the Rennaisance possible. Our selection of oils are pre-mixed and ready to use. No apprentices for grinding and mixing are necessary.

At Hofcraft, we carry a variety of both student and professional grade oil paints including Winton Student Oils, Reeves Oil Paint Sets as well as Shiva Oil Paintstiks. Richeson Signature Oils and Winsor and Newton Professional Artists Oils.

Bob Ross
Bob Ross Oil Paint

As he finished his twenty-ninth Public Television series of The Joy of Painting, Bob Ross couldn't help but feel that he was dreaming.  The incredible success of the art series has made Bob so familiar to so many viewers, he was often overwhelmed by the warmth he felt from people around the country.  "I get so many letters from folks telling me that I'm like a member of their family; it's a fantastic feeling."

Bob's gentle and motivating kind of approach to teaching the wet-on-wet painting technique was not just a "happy accident" however.  Ever since he first appeared on Public Television with his JOY OF PAINTING series in 1983, Bob Ross had made a commitment to himself and a promise to his viewers to never lose sight of his goal: to provide the best, the possible, and to do it in the warm, "family-like" style which had made it so popular.  "I made sure that with each and every show, I have made close, personal contact with my viewers," said Bob.

It is easy to see how Bob's dedication to an idea has effected so many.  We hope that, for many years to come, his warmth and tender spirit will continue to touch the hearts of the many people around the country who can truly be called "friend".

Mr. Bob Ross passed away July 4, 1995 at the age of 52.  Mr. Ross's wife Jane died in 1993. He is survived by a son, Steven, of Ronkonkoma, L.I., who is a Bob Ross instructor and occasionally appeared on Mr. Ross's program.
