Contemporary knowledge dedicated to the making of traditional materials. Beautiful, high quality, bright paint.

 

Gamblin Artist's Oil Colours are made with pure pigments and the finest refined linseed oil. As there are no adulterants or additives in Gamblin colours, each colour retains its own unique characteristics including tinting strength, undertone and texture.

Gamblin is dedicated to maintaining the tradition of oil painting while also working towards an artist's studio with no exposure to toxic solvents.

 

Crafted by hand with the well-being of artists, their work, and the environment in mind. True to historic working properties, yet safer and more permanent, they combine the best traditions of the past with the latest technical innovations, giving you the freedom to create without compromise.

 

Made with the finest grades of pigment available, Gamblin Artist's Oils have luscious working properties, and each colour possesses unique characteristics in terms of texture, undertone, and tinting strength. The range of colours includes both historically accurate paints and modern, synthetically derived hues. 

 

All Gamblin Artist's Oil Paints are completely non-toxic when used as recommended. Most are made with alkali-refined linseed oil as a binder, which creates a strong, flexible paint film and yellows significantly less than cold press linseed oil, the traditional binder in oil paints. Select colours that use safflower oil as a binder. Not only are these vegetable oils completely non-toxic, but they are also commonly used in health and beauty products, so you can trust in their safety.

 

Blues

 

Owning an oil painting made with expensive blues was once a status symbol. Painters who were poor or didn’t live in cosmopolitan areas never used any blue at all. Jan van Eyck used lapis – but only at the request of his patrons.

 

Blue is the most commonly confused colour in terms of its hue temperature. There is a widely held misconception that all blues are cool.

 

This is not at all the case: Indanthrone, Cobalt, and Phthalo Blue, for example, are warm, and Ultramarine Blue is so warm that it’s almost purple.
