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. 
Ultramarine Blue
Originally made by extracting the purest blue particles from the gemstone lapis lazuli.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.
Yellow Ochre (Domestic)
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.
Courbet Green
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.
