Made in Oregon from pure artist pigments and refined linseed oil, Gamblin Artist's Oil Colors are a traditional, professional quality oil paint. Fairly stiff out of the tube, allowing you to build up texture if you choose, these colors quickly start to flow with the addition of a bit of medium or solvent. The colors are intense, tending toward transparency and warmth. And Gamblin paints are engineered for superior permanence and safety.
This starter set of eight is perfect for someone who wants to get started with excellent paint or an artist who'd like to upgrade his or her palette from student-grade paints. It includes cadmium yellow light, cadmium red light, alizarin crimson, ultramarine blue, viridian, yellow ochre, burnt umber, ivory black and titanium white. The paint is cleverly packed into the back of a cradled painting panel, so your first surface is included.
