To update my oil paint brands review and reference, I bought some paints that I don’t normally use. I have never used Cranfield or Bob Ross. I list Maimeri Puro and Richeson in my reference but I haven’t used them enough to rate them. This purchase allows me to correct that.
I previously rated M. Graham but since it’s not one of my most-used brands, I’ll update my rating after using it.
Green pale or green light is the only color from this order that is a fixture on my palette. Naples yellow used to be a palette regular but I found I didn’t need it especially since it’s pricey. Maimeri Puro’s Naples yellow is a single pigment color which is a good thing. These days most manufacturers put up a blend and label it Naples Yellow. The other paints in this purchase are blends of several pigments.
Like Naples yellow. Indian yellow used to be a palette regular, but no more. The Bob Ross tube doesn’t list its pigments which is a bad thing and doesn’t bode well for my trial.
King’s blue deep and ice blue are fun colors but I don’t expect them to get a place in my palette even if these particular brands are good.
Expect to see updates to my oil paint brands review and reference in the coming days.
Have you tried Vasari? I saw a video with an artist and he appeared to be pushing Vasari so I looked them up…holy crap! For example, Cad Red med was on sale and a 40 ml tube was around $50. That’s out of my league so I guess it would be a D or an F in your price rating.
I have not tried Vasari. Vasari’s cerulean blue (I use this color as my metric for pricing) is $68.00 for a 40ml tube. For comparison, Old Holland is $84 and Blockx is $72. So, yeah, a D- for price on my scale. They still make flake white which is important. I’ll try some.
