A Set of Chromatic Greys


This is a set of five 40ml tubes of coloured or chromatic greys, they come in our presentation boxes and would make a very good gift. The images show them with more chroma than the reality and really don't do them justice!

They look beautiful together and are very harmonious or analogous and would obviously work very well when used together, however they are also highly functional individually.

When capturing light in painting it is these low chroma, mid to high value greys which really create the illusion of light. These would be very useful in plein aire painting when the environmental conditions make it tricky to mix colours with such subtleties.

The swatch images don't do them justice, it would be hard to capture the shifting feel of these paints, I am very impressed.

The set consists of;

Blue grey, it is quite luminous which would be very hard to achieve by mixing on the palette, however at the same time it has the wonderful muted appearance of these colours.

Green grey, cooler, greener version of the blue grey again displays a vibrancy impossible to mix.

Yellow grey, a rich warm grey with gentle yellow undertones.

Orange grey, a muted flesh/terracotta hue absolutely in tune with it's siblings in both value and subtlety.

Red grey, possibly the highest chroma of the five, a pinkish grey with blueish undertones.

Chromatic Greys

Bought as a gift to my sister, packaging is brilliant and colours looks good, something new. Sister can't wait to receive them. She lives in Latvia and unfortunately in Latvia you can't get this kind of oil paints.

Received very quickly and with a personal dispatch email. Beautiful colours, they are pigmented but have a certain quality I cannot seem to recreate myself in mixes. They spread really well and have good coverage this pretty eco I am as well as being enjoyable to use. . I use them to knock back opposing colours to neutralise. Even though they seem quite coloured they do work well as shadow and highlight tones! They are an unusual colour.. neutral, bright yet a definite “colour”
So basically they are magic and you will love them

I love them!

Wow; gorgeous paints! They are the muted "ugly" colors I needed for my plein air landscapes, except they are totally beautiful in their own right. Now I can't paint without them! My favorite is the yellow-grey though I love them all.

Beautiful colours

I am delighted with the chromatic greys. The colors are subtle abd great to offset stronger colors or to use as intermediate tones.

Just lovely and very useful greys

My paintings just needed these greys. The Orange-grey is my favourit just now.
Thank you Supreme Paints for selling these and also sending them to Finland!
