Bought these paints after researching lots of paints. Went with others opinions from other people. I can’t fault these paints as they are a joy to work with. I have come to the conclusion that buying cheaper paints was false economy for me because although not cheap they go a lot further. The colours by themselves and when mixed are vibrant and spreads on the canvas beautifully. Will carry on buying these paints and gradually discard my old cheaper ones.
Easy to order online and arrived pronto. Nice one.
Interesting medium for oil paint and I'm looking forward to fully exploring its use. The packing and service was super as usual. Thanks to James.
This colour has become indispensable to me.I usually like a lighter ochre , but this has the advantage of a distinctly lemon tone and handling qualities that bridges the gap between yellow ochre and raw sienna. Rublev are among the very best artisan paint manufacturers.
Very similar to cerulean in appearance, but with less saturation. Like cobalt blue it has very little tinting strength and is dominated in mixes by stronger pigments.It is dense and opaque.
However it is a very seductive, and in subtle combinations can produce ,beautiful
cool greens and aqua blues.Ideal for seascapes and landscapes.
Owning to the purity of manufacture, the lack of stabiliser causes this pigment to separate from the oil, while in the tube. I would suggest massaging the tube and
regularly alternating the position of the tube, which alleviates this problem a little.
That said, as with all Wallace and Seymour paints, it's a joy to use and in it's rarity demonstrates this company's dedication to finding unique pigments and the highest form of paint manufacture.
I do work that requires very smooth blending and this medium has been the best one I've found for my technique. I've experimented over the years with all sorts of mediums and I've settled on Oleogel for oiling out and Italian Varnish Medium for adding to my paint. Both are great mediums in their own right and I get excellent results when used together. Well packaged, speedy delivery and good communication.
This shop deserves the name suprême.
They sell high quality stuf you can not buy everywhere.
Shop for only the best! No midrange.And of course you have to pay for it.
Painting my daughter's two ginger dogs running at sunset, this paint is so useful!!!
My order was dispatched the next day and arrived boxed the day after that. Excellent customer service and quality oil paints.
Incredible amount of pigment in this paint with a very smooth texture. I couldn't wait to test it out so I did a little sketch of a lemon and I hardly had to use any of the paint. It is certainly not as green as the swatch above, I used some Mars black which obviously takes it very green in my image. Adrian Lloyd Art.
When I ordered two tubes of oil paint from this company I did so even though I'd never hear of them previously. They were however selling the brand and colours I wanted. Delivery was prompt and my "package" was a delight to open - really! When I saw it I was intrigued by the care that had obviously been taken in its wrapping. Inside ..... a beautiful box with the company logo. In my mind the thought was - 'if they take this much care then they value their customers'.
Excellent service and I'll certainly do business with them again.
I osten use indigo rather than black. This a good one, lovely flat colour and mixes well with other colours
As is already said about this paint, it has masses of pigment and it is an incredibly intense colour. Love it. Adrian Lloyd Art
Best white I have ever used in oil painting
If you’re going to spend hours of precious time painting a portrait you need to enjoy the best materials.
My expectations were high after seeing the swatch & reading Jame’s description but I didn’t imagine it would exceed those expectations in such a dramatic way. All Rublev oil paints are brilliant & don’t disappoint but there are quite a few that words simply can’t do justice too & this one Transparent red oxide is one. The pigment load is off the scale & the mass tone & tinted hues you can mix are gorgeous. By far the best I’ve used & I would strongly recommend.
Only the best
Prompt completion of order ... good ‘green’ packaging ... query submitted with order answered courteously in an informed and informative manner ... excellent service by a supplier new to me ... will recommend & use again
This one will not disappoint. Beautiful smooth consistency, long in the brushstroke, the paint seems to shine on the canvas.Thank you Rublev and Supreme Paint, excellent service as always!
Ercolano Red is another wonderful natural red earth from Rublev. Pr102, a natural rather than synthetic iron oxide gives this paint a slight texture, you can feel the grains under the palette knife. I personally enjoy this aspect of natural pigments. This pigment was mined from near the Ercolano region of Italy, also known Herculaneum which sounds pretty cool if you ask me :-) Seriously though, I highly recommend this as well as the full range of natural earth pigments from Rublev. They have a feeling of authenticity and as Harold Speed said about earth colours in general "they have a nobility and dignity about them that the vegetable and mineral colours do not possess."
As for the supreme paint company, I have nothing but praise for them. They obviously love the products they sell and know what they are talking about. I have been purchasing my paint from them for a couple of years now and have never had a single problem. The orders are dealt with as quickly as possible;e, even during these difficult times. The products arrive packaged beautifully which just adds to the experience. I have total faith and trust in them. Very highly reccomended. If you have ever used Rosemart and Co to buy your brushes, then think of supreme paint company in the same way. They have the same level of customer service and knowledge of their product. wonderful
For that authentic Monet experience I am now planning a visit to Giverny! Supreme Paints has an amazing choice of very special paints.
I love spike oil (lavender oil) for cleaning brushes, especially where the paint may have dried a bit. Great product!
James has said it all, really, in his excellent description of Venetian White. All I can say is that I agree and that it is a very useful white to have to hand.
I'll never finish this tube. I need only the very tiniest amount to lift the most prominent of highlights. Works like magic as long as you don't apply too much of it. Lead White Number 1 is my workhorse but Crystal `White is an useful addition to my range of paint (and I use them with great care - I wear reusable latex gloves!)
