Oil paints are one of the most popular painting mediums and have been used by artists for centuries. They are a great choice for both professional artists and beginners alike.
One of the biggest advantages of oil paints is their ability to blend smoothly and create a range of textures. The slow drying time of oil paints allows artists to blend colours seamlessly and create gradients that are difficult to achieve with other mediums. This makes oil paints ideal for creating realistic portraits, landscapes, and still life paintings.
Oil paints are known for their longevity and, when used correctly, can last for hundreds of years. This makes them an excellent choice for artists who want to create pieces that will stand the test of time.
They can be used on a variety of surfaces, including canvas, paper and even wood. And can be mixed with a range of mediums, including linseed oil, turpentine and varnish, to achieve different effects.
We offer the best brands in the market such as Winsor and Newton, Art Spectrum and Michael Harding. Winsor and Newton oil paints are highly pigmented, which means that the colours are bright and vivid, even after they have dried. Art Spectrum oil paints have a unique blend of linseed oil, which gives them a buttery texture that is easy to work with. This makes them ideal for both beginners and professionals who want to achieve a range of effects and textures in their paintings.
