Williamsburg Handmade Oil Colors

Williamsburg Handmade Oil Colors has one of the most extensive lines of professional grade, quality oil paints. As a painter's paint, there are many things that make Williamsburg colors unique, such as milling each pigment to its own unique standard to develop the richest expression of color and undertone. Some colors feel slightly gritty; others extremely smooth. This approach preserves the range of texture oil paints had in the past. The paint is incredibly pigment rich, with a dense, yet buttery texture; each color has its own finish and feel. Williamsburg has a number of unique colors, particularly within the wide range of earth colors. It is a brand for professional oil painters who are looking for a handmade painter's paint. It is competitively priced relative to other professional, European oil paints. Art Placement stocks the entire range of WIlliamsburg oil paints in 37ml tubes. Select colors also available in 150ml tubes. See below for individual tube pricing.

NEW - Neutral Grays - 150 ml tubes

Williamsburg Neutral Grays

Ground in alkali-refined linseed oil, the Neutral Grays use a combination of Titanium White, Lamp Black, and small amounts of various iron oxides (Burnt Umber, Burnt Sienna, Raw Sienna) to pull the otherwise too-cool mixtures towards neutral. It took great finesse from the Lab, with the goal to always track as tightly as possible, the spectral curves generated from an official, newly minted set of Munsell Grays. The new Williamsburg Grays match the Munsell values nearly flawlessly across the spectrum. The fact that any attempt at Munsell equivalents are constantly compared to such exacting, universal model is what sets these colors apart. The Munsell Grays are meant to form an objective and known scale that any other color can be measured against. Incorporated as part of one's palette, they can allow a painter to adjust a color's chroma in a repeatable and precise way that is simply not attainable otherwise. Williamsburg Special Edition Neutral Grays are available in 150 ml tubes.

French Earth Colours

The thirteen new French Earth Colours expands the depth of offerings of natural earth colours from regions with historical importance. They will appeal to painters seeking a broader palette of historical materials; those who want to feel more connected to specific regions and traditions. They also appeal to modern painters who appreciate that natural earths provide a type of texture and physical presence, as well as a subtlety of colour caused by the unique mix of impurities each mining region possesses; something that synthetic iron oxides simply do not and cannot provide.
