The perfect introduction to the colorful world of Sennelier oils.
Sennelier Finest Artists' Oils Plein Air Landscape Set includes 8 tubes of oil paint from this extraordinary color line imported from France. The paint is made from the finest hand-ground pigments mixed with pure, first press non-yellowing safflower oils. This gives them a distinctive “satin” finish and stiff-butter consistency allowing the paint to beautifully hold the shape of brushstrokes. The blending of this paint with your brush is truly a sensuous experience.
Mixability is a priority for Sennelier. The highly pigmented oils dry in a uniform manner over the entire range of 140 colors. All pigment compositions are orchestrated to provide the most brilliant saturated combinations when intermixed. Whether used straight from the tube or mixed extensively, Sennelier oils are uniquely balanced and harmonious.
Gustave Sennelier developed these paints in 1887 and enthralled the early pioneers - Monet, Gauguin, Matisse and Pissaro - who first used them. Then later Picasso, Hockney and artists of today who seek a concentrated stable pigment and color intensity that will endure for generations.
