For both professional and student artists, this modern oil paint formula boasts a quick drying time, making them a good choice when painting multiple layers. While another titanium white may take more than a week to dry, Rive Gauche dries in as little as five days almost twice as fast! Made with safflower oil, these oil paints are less prone to yellowing than brands made with linseed oil. Rive Gauche Oil Colors have a high pigment concentration, which allows for strong covering power and cleaner mixes. These oils have a thick, uniform texture and very good lightfastness. Luminous and opaque, they dry to a satin finish. Even the cadmium-free colors deliver an opaqueness and luminosity that's equivalent to real cadmiums. Made in France.
