After much study, and testing, these are the basic colors of my palette. I find that from this collection of fine "artist" grade oils, I can create just about any color needed to realistically paint my subject; Whether it's a still life, landscape, or figure, these time tested paints have stood by me throughout the years, and have proven to be of the best quality available.
