Welcome to dickblick
Since founding Gamblin Artists Colors, Robert Gamblin has wanted artists to be able to paint freely — to use color and texture without hesitation or reservation.
To do this, painters need colors that are true. True to the pigment. True to historic working properties. True to the emotion of each color. Colors that feel right under the brush and that age right on the canvas.
Gamblin 1980 Oil Colors offer artists true color and real value. This line of 48 colors offers artists a better student-grade paint, made here in America at a terrific value, from a company you can believe in.
This set gives beginning painters a thoughtfully constructed palette of luscious Gamblin 1980 Oil Colors to support any style of painting. It includes 37 ml (1.25 oz) tubes of Cadmium Yellow Light, Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Red Light, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue, Phthalo Green, Ivory Black, Titanium White, and Solvent-Free Gel Medium, plus a primed, handcrafted panel made from sustainably forested North American birch.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.

Great for the beginning and middle of paitings
from Hilton Head Island, SC
Comments about Gamblin 1980 Oil Colors:
I love this product for the beginning and middle of my paintings. When I'm nearing the end and adding fine detail, vivid color in the foreground, and areas being hit by the sun, I may switch to a higher quality artists oil. But, this product is 90% of the paint on my canvas every time.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best Oil colors for lower price

Nice quality oil paints for a descent price.
great price and nice touch for unique color
from Great Falls,VA
Well, our art teacher suggested to choosing this Gamblin 1980 Oil Colors for some special colors which can't find out other brand name product. It means their color is very unique and easy to express beautiful color. Specially I like price for the first time trial for my kid's the first oil painting and it deserved to do it.
Gamblin oils are the best
from New York
These oil paints have been the best by far that I've ever used in over 40 years. Consistent, smooth, creamy. solid. Absolutely perfect!
It's really nice
By Newby Artist
from Baltimore, MD
This was my first time using oil paint. I'd tried Acrylic and Watercolor but I didn't like either of them. I have to say, since getting it, I'm truly hooked on oils. Gamblin is truly worthy of it's good reviews. With just the small amount of colors I had, I was able to mix a variety of different colors. I could get multiple shades of browns, purples, and pretty much any other color I tried making.I would really recommend this to people who are just dipping their toes in oil paint and trying to see if they like it. Mine came with a pre-gessoed wood panel and it made that deal all the better. Not only did I have the paints, I had something I could paint on and experiment with.The only thing I would change is that I wish it came with Burnt Umber. A lot of artists use it for the underpainting and I would've liked to try that out. But, that wasn't a big deal. I still managed to make my first oil painting just fine (it was a simple eye since I wanted to test it out). If you're considering getting this, just go ahead and get it. It's completely worth it.
from Alpena, MI
Purchased these for their value and to compare working with this line versus other oil paints. I was incredibly pleased with the quality and color (not to mention the branding, as a graphic designer I appreciate the little things )Would highly recommend to both beginners and professional artists alike.

These Gamblin paints provide a great value for the wide variety of basic colors and the included solid wood canvas. This is a great gift for someone getting started or for someone who goes through a lot of basic colors.

Working Well for this Beginner
By Angela the Potter
from Waco, TX
I am taking my very first Oil Painting class, and I chose these because Gamblin because it was one of the recommended paints by my the instructor. Since he has been painting with oils over 40 years I decided to trust his judgment. So far they have been working well, and they mix well together to create beautiful colors. I was even able to use them in a splatter technique that I use when glazing my pots. I have no complaints and plan to use them in all my oil paintings to come.
