Oil Paint and Oil Paint Mediums

Oil paint is a type of slow-drying paint that consists of particles of pigment suspended in a drying oil, commonly linseed oil. The viscosity of the paint may be modified by the addition of a solvent such as turpentine or white spirit, and varnish may be added to increase the glossiness of the dried oil paint film.

    With 96 colours, our Professional watercolour range offers bright, vibrant colours and unrivalled performance.

    Water colour more than any other medium relies upon the variable characteristics of the pigments used. Our Professional Water Colours use only the purest pigments, and are known for their brilliance, permanence and strength of colour.

    Pigments
    With 75 single pigment colours in the range, we offer the widest range of modern and traditional pigments for superb colour mixing.

    Unrivalled Transparency
    The transparency of Professional Water Colour is due to the way the pigment is dispersed during manufacture. In thin washes, the colour is present but the reflective white of the paper can still be seen. The colours provide brilliance and clean mixing and the natural characteristics of pigments mean that some will be more transparent than others.

    Permanence
    93 out of 96 colours in our Professional Water Colour range are classed as "permanent for artists' use”, rated AA or A for permanence to ensure that the colours used today will appear the same for generations to come.

  • Reeves Oil Paint

    Oil colour is very popular thanks to its extraordinary versatility. It will provide you with excellent results from the traditional painting techniques of blending and glazing through to impasto and scumbling.

    Oil colour has a long drying time which will allow you to blend colours and glaze over a long period. Modifications can easily be made to the painting as it develops whilst the colour is wet. Stretched and primed canvas is the traditional support for oil colour.
