Want to paint like an artist?

For many years, artists have been using Resene's wide range of paint colours and types to bring their creative ideas to life.

One such artist is Alexander Bartleet, whose unique approach to both art and paint has earned him rave reviews and copious awards.

His medium is recycled materials, and this extends to the paint he uses.

With the recycled paint he collects from Resene, he is able to give his quirky three-dimensional pieces a colourful and creative undercoat.

But that's not all. He also uses this paint to hold all of the objects – which can include anything from old mobile phones to lost puzzle pieces – he uses to create his works together.

Another artist who swears by the Resene colour range is Catherine Jurgens.

Her works are characteristically bright, cheerful and often deceptively simple.

Catherine has been sharing her artistic talents with the public since she was 18 years old, and strives to use high-quality and eco-friendly materials when creating her masterpieces.

She told Resene she finds the names of our paint colours "inspiring" – so if you're an artist and feel in need of a little direction, you may want to check out the Resene colour range and our technical information for artists online to get you started.

Of course, you don't have to be a successful artist to enjoy the range of paints, colours and decorating ideas available at your nearest Resene ColorShop.
