FREE SAMPLE SET of Williamsburg Handmade Oil Colors
in the ART CELLAR
for all you experienced oil painters or for those who want to dabble...
From the beginning, Williamsburg Handmade Oil Colors have
been formulated to enhance the beauty and luminosity specific to each
pigment.This philosophy is
responsible for giving each color a unique look and feel.Each color also has its own unique
story.Here are the stories behind
the three colors in our landscape sample set.
Originally made by extracting the purest blue particles from
the gemstone lapis lazuli.During
the Renaissance it was by far the most expensive color used, surpassing even
gold in value. The current synthetic pigment was created in 1826 and
immediately took its place as a mainstay of the modern palette.A versatile, reddish blue with a
gorgeous translucent tone. Used in glazes it glows, like the celestial blue
robes that adorned the Madonnas in earlier paintings. Mixed with a cool red it
can easily create a range of purples and violets that feel natural and sit
comfortably in space.
From the Blue Ridge area of the Appalachian Mountains, this
domestic ochre has a smooth and creamy feel and falls between our Italian
Yellow and Lemon Ochre in hue.The
color of straw and stone and dense yellow clays, it remains one of the most
common choices in a landscape palette, while also being useful when creating
flesh tones and whenever a little extra warmth is needed in a blend. A touch
mixed into Titanium White will give it a warm cast like bleached bone, or mix
with a variety of blues to get a wonderful range of khaki and olive greens.
A signature color of the Williamsburg line from the very
beginning.This deep, moody yet
earthy green was inspired by passages in Courbet and Delacroix. Straight from
the tube it can appear nearly blackish, but a quick scrape with a palette knife
reveals a surprising blue undertone. Extremely versatile, it produces a range
of cool slate-grays when mixed with white, but blended with yellows will go
into a whole different key altogether, creating a range of leafy forest greens.
We hope these ‘colorful’ descriptions have inspired you to try out these
colors in your palette.If so, ask
for the special sample set containing these three colors next time you visit
the Art Cellar.
