Charvin Extra Fine Oils 60ml
Based on over 175 years of experience, Charvin has created a high quality oil paint at an extremely reasonable, single price point. Charvin Extra Fine Professional Oil Paints use a combination of the finest in traditional and modern pigments, bound with a blend of linseed and non-yellowing poppy oils, for a smooth, creamy consistency and vibrant colour.
Charvin House of High Colour has been meticulously creating fine artists' oil colours, serving artists like Cezanne, Bonnard, and Ambrogiani. Using only the highest grade pigments that are triple-milled to the finest particle size, Charvin Extra Fine Oil Colours span a naturally progressing colour range from the subtlest shades to brilliant hues. The main binding ingredient in Charvin Extra Fine oils is poppy oil, which dries slower than linseed oil (but without its tendency to yellow over time), and provides a rich creaminess to the paint.
Permanent and light-fast, Charvin Extra Fine Oils are designed to accurately reflect the hues of nature, making them ideal for plein-air painting. The smooth and creamy texture lends itself perfectly to alla prima painting, yet the high pigment concentration also allows paint to be thinned down to the most subtle and luminous glazes(as with any Poppy Oil based paint, remember to follow the fat over lean method of painting).
