I haven’t really changed oil paints or gone shopping for new paint for a while so when I recently had the opportunity to try Artiste’s made-in-SA oils I wasn’t expecting a whole lot. However after painting with them the only real criticism I have of them is that they should come in bigger tubes because they’re really very good quality and great to work with!
The consistency of the paint itself is perfect, it spreads very evenly and is the perfect buttery creamy texture to create nice impasto brush strokes. The colors are vivid and mixed well and easily and retained their brightness excellently even after the work dried. I found myself wanting to lay on more and more paint because painting with these paints just felt so good.
Excellent work creating these Artiste. I think they’re a world-class product.
