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 the serious portrait artist most often needs for a full range of skin tones and hair colors. This palette's soft, neutral color reduces the color intensity and produces 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, and 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 on this website are only approximations of the actual color of the oil paint. We have carefully matched the color in these pictures on calibrated color monitors to the actual color. However, the results may vary because of the wide variance in color monitors.
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.
