GAMBLIN is a regional company dedicated solely to oil painting. Since founding the company in Portland, OR, Bob Gamblin has been hard at work formulating some the finest oils in the world. Made with the traditional linseed oil, each color has an optimized balance of oil and pigment content, giving you the highest pigment load possible. Gamblin has a full line of contemporary mediums to help you attain the perfect effects, and publish resources to help you find the perfect recipe. Please be aware that the only color in their full color line that requires skin protection is Cobalt Violet.
M.GRAHAM oil paints are locally made, unique in their utilization of walnut oil as a binder, instead of linseed. It is slower-drying, creamier, and more free-flowing, which provides superior workability and rich, vibrant color. If you enjoy extended working time to delicately blend colors, these are your paints. M.Graham oils are a great choice for beginner or veteran artists, and are less expensive than most other artist-grade oils. If you wish to rid your studio of flammable solvents, use walnut oil to clean your brushes. It is a natural way to remove color without creating a solvent hazard. M Graham oils are now available for purchase online.
Gamblin 1980 colors are formulated with pure pigments, the finest refined linseed oil and marble dust (calcium carbonate). More affordable colors have been made with these three ingredients since oil painting began. With 1980 colors, artists experience colors that are true, without homogenized texture or muddy color mixtures. Our approach of using both traditional and raw materials and processes ensures that artists experience the luscious working properties that they expect from their oil colors.
