A classic oil colour for artists

The paints come in a huge range of 178 colours including iridescent and interference colours not usually found in oil paints. Find the full range on the Williamsburg Handmade Oil Colors page where each colour is represented by a hand painted swatch showing the tones achieved when applied thinly, thickly and when mixed with white.

Of course, I couldn’t wait to have a go and really enjoyed them! This was painted on a Global Wooden Panel (Unprimed standard edge 8” x10”) using the following Williamsburg Colours:
Brilliant Yellow Pale, Titanium White, Alizarin Orange, Persian Rose, Italian Pompeii Red, Stil de Grain, Kings Blue, Italian Lemon Ochre & Viridian.

Williamsburg was founded in the US with pigments and know-how sourced from all over the globe.
