Making Oil Paints
In his naturally lit studio, Pavelis controls the quality of sunlight and makes his own oil-colors, fresh for his palette.
Handmade paints are rarely found in contemporary art work, yet Pavelis relies on them for their unparalleled chromatic luminance and texture variation. Dissatisfied with the conventional look of commercial tube paints, he combines ancient, modern or rare pigments with historically proven oils and varnishes. While the process requires research, trial-and-error and skill, his natural approach to color distinguishes his work.
