“If you took all the pigments in the color spectrum and mixed them together, what color would you make?
Every spring, Gamblin Artists Colors collects a wealth of pigments from our Torit® Air Filtration system. We filter the air around the areas where we handle dry pigments so that our workers are not exposed to pigment dust. Rather than sending any of our high quality, expensive pigments into the landfill, Gamblin paint makers recycle them into “Gamblin Torrit Grey”.
Join nationally recognized portrait artist and Gamblin Dedicated Workshop Instructor Chris Saper for a fun and exciting three-day workshop using just Black, White, and Torrit grey pigments to explore and enhance your skills in seeing and handling values in oil painting. Both still life and live model portrait options will be available, so the class is well suited for painters of every level. This is a perfect class for both students who are new to oils, and for experienced painters who want structured opportunities to strengthen their skills.

Although Gamblin has discontinued its annual Torrit Grey Competition, the company still offers painters the opportunity for their work to be recognized on its website.
