What is Bistre

Bistre has been used since the first century AD but became very popular in the 16th and 17th century, it is manufactured from the soot of Birch and or Beech wood after going through a thorough process of eliminating any contaminants and foreign matter  it is finally ground and mixed with the finest refined linseed oil.

Using Turner Bistre Oil Colour

To carry out a task like the Turner Bistre Oil Painting of Glass of Water and Coffee Pot, start using Turner Bistre Oil Colour as in this example of the painting after Chardin in 1760, all one needs it the Turner Bistre Oil paint, a tiny amount of White and a Spot of Black, the importance of creating a painting is that you must understand the values in the painting and the object more that anything ells, some people like to squint their eyes when looking at the subject that is to be painted, this is common practice, however there are many different ways of doing this from using a glass filter at in our modern day of apps one can use an app like Value Viewer or AccuView. I personally try to just look at the object and see the values as they are, this way I train my eye to recognise value at a glance in almost anything, just take a look at the Turner Bistre Oil painting of  Glass of water and coffee pot

Seeing Value

If you are new to the subject or just starting to realise the importance of value in a painting or even a small sketch, then start by looking at the clouds and try to figure out how different they are in light and dark, then put on some sunglasses and take a further look and you will start to notice the difference, continue to practice and once you start to get the feel for it, start to look at a landscape in exactly the same manner, be sure to try to see the different values without the sunglasses and then try the sunglasses, take a look at the still life of the Turner Bistre Oil painting Glass of Water and Coffee pot.

What is Bistre

Bistre has been used as far back as the 14th century as an ink, but was 1st written in English the 17th century, known artist to have used Bistre ink are many including, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Gainsborough and many more.

What is New about Bistre

Turner Bistre Portrait painting, “Jan”.

This Portrait of Jan using the Turner Bistre Oil pain was carried out in order to practice using the New Turner Bistre Oil paint, the results are pleasing and the only other colour used was white and only for the collar.

Jan in Turner Bistre

The original Bistre was manufactured by boiling the soot from Birch and or Beach wood in Distilled or rain water and filtering it off to get rid of any contaminants.

Availability. Now for the first time ever, Marc A Turner and Turner Artist Colours have recreated the original Bistre ink into an Oil paint that is now available through the internet, we have put it on the market at a subsidised price to allow every one to be able to afford it and try it out.

Use it for sketching. Ideal for sketching using an almost dry bristle brush, use it for plein air painting on its own or in conjunction with Black and White paint,

The joy of Bistre. Apart from the joy of knowing that the great master painters used bistre throughout the ages, such as Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo and Peter Paul Rubens, and now for the first time ever you can use it in an oil paint.
