Rublev Colours Portrait Palette provides the highest quality professional oil colors for portrait and figure painting. Use the colors to achieve a natural flesh color spectrum. The set offers the colors needed most often by the serious portrait artist for a full range of skin tones and hair color. The soft, neutral color of this palette can be used to reduce the color intensity and produce cool or warm skin tones. These colors can be blended and used interchangeably with other oil colors.
Rublev Colors Artist Oils are based on single, natural mineral and historical pigments that provide Old Masters-like painting effects in oil. This color range features such exotic pigments as natural ultramarine (lapis lazuli), azurite, malachite, among many others. The paint is made in small batches and packed in 50 ml tubes giving you 33% more color than typical 37 ml tubes.
The Portrait Palette includes one full-sized tube each of 5 colors: Antica Green Earth, Italian Yellow Earth, Cyprus Raw Umber Medium, Italian Burnt Sienna and German Vine Black.
Note: Colors swatches are shown in mass tone, straight from the tube, on the left, and mixed with an equal amount of white on the right. All pictures of color swatches in this web site are only approximations of the actual color of the oil paint. We taken every care to match the color in these pictures on calibrated color monitors to the actual color. However, because of the wide variance in color monitors the results you get may vary.
We may substitute colors that are out of stock or unavailable at the time of your order with similar hues of equal or greater value.
