Rublev Colours Goya Palette provides the highest quality professional oil colors for portrait and figure painting based on the actual colors used by Francisco Jose de Goya y Lucientes (1746–1828). These colors can be blended and used interchangeably with other oil colors.
Besides an artist's personal notes or treatises on the painting of the period, the systematic arrangement of separate colors and mixtures on the palette, which the painter prepared before he began his work, can be used to study the artist's painting procedures. Such palettes can be found in portraits or self-portraits where the palette is held in the hand with the rows of colors and tints clearly visible.
One such portrait is the portrait of Goya with his palette, painted in 1827, by Vicente López y Portaña (1772–1850) shown above clearly shows the colors he used. Goya used nine separate colors and arranged them on the palette with the white on nearest the thumbhole and the blacks on the opposite side.

All pictures of color swatches in this web site are only approximations of the actual color of the oil paint. We have 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.
