Oil Colours

We take great pride in our oil paint selection. Each line of oil paint that we carry has been carefully selected to meet different artist’s needs, from the beginner to the professional, without compromising quality. Old Holland Oil Colours offer by far the highest pigmentation while Blockx offers the creamiest, richest handmade oil paint available. Williamsburg’s philosophy is to grind each colour to enhance the beauty and luminosity of each pigment so some colours are extremely smooth while others are slightly gritty. Williamsburg also offers a unique line of Native Italian Earths , the very same pigments used by the great Sienese and Florentine masters. Japan’s Holbein Oil colours are by far the most technically advanced with each colour offering the exact same consistency, colour to colour. Sennelier offers a unique fast drying oil developed for the Impressionists, specifically Cezanne. Mussini’s unique resin based formulation lends itself to creating the most incredible translucent glazes. Gamblin Oil Colours are made in Portland, Oregon and offer a European quality at a domestic price. Our best selling, M. Graham Oil Colours feature a traditional walnut oil formulation that was used by many of the Old Masters and M. Graham along with everyone’s favorite Winsor and Newton Oil colours are offered with an artist friendly 40% Discount! Please take a moment and visit our Oil Paint Department. Read more..
