Van Gogh is the brand for the working artist who is searching for quality and exceptional value. Royal Talens developed the brand to be a happy medium between professional grade and student grade oils.
The oil colours are made using pure pigments and are milled into a quality oil binder which ensures the buttery colours give a wonderful result with oil techniques. All colours have a uniform thickness, degree of sheen, and dry times which makes the line a pleasure to use in terms of working qualities and mixability. Because of the high content of pigment and the fine grind, the colours are strong and brilliant. Van Gogh oil colours offer choices from four gradations of opacity (transparent, semi-transparent, semi-opaque and opaque). All colours are rated from good to excellent lightfastness which ensures the colours are retained in the long term.
Have we mentioned that Van Gogh oil was the paint of the entire ‘Loving Vincent?’ If you haven’t gotten a chance you can learn more in our article- “Loving Vincent – Our Love Affair with a Vision.” Read about our continued involvement with the film and the story behind why the brand was chosen for all the paint used in the film!
Van Gogh oil colour is available in a wide range of 66 colours in various tube sizes, sets and artists’ boxes. Van Gogh is the ideal brand for the serious artist for whom quality is important.
