Vibrant, Beautiful, Durable & Abundant.

We have been stocking these famous artists oil colours for nearly 25 years !

‘The higher the pigment content of an Oil Paint, the greater the resistance it has to fading. Nearly all manufacturers use fillers to extend the volume of the oil paint. It may increase profit, but it compromises the quality.

I refuse to use fillers. Why make something exceptional only to dilute it?’
