Experience Color

Color is meant not just to be seen, but experienced.

Color has characteristics beyond their mere appearance. An individual color possesses its own luscious texture, mixing quality, emotional resonance and historical significance in painting. When you squeeze oil color from one of our tubes, you experience color at its maximum.
