Welcome to dickblick
Gamblin Artist's Oil Colors are crafted by hand with the well-being of artists, their work, and the environment in mind. True to historic working properties, yet safer and more permanent, they combine the best traditions of the past with the latest technical innovations, giving you the freedom to create without compromise.
Made with the finest grades of pigment available (yes, there are differences), Gamblin Artist's Oils have luscious working properties, and each color possesses unique characteristics in terms of texture, undertone, and tinting strength. The range of colors includes both historically accurate paints and modern, synthetically derived hues. For everything from traditional realism to contemporary abstraction, you'll find your ideal colors within the Gamblin line.
All Gamblin Artist's Oil Paints are completely non-toxic when used as recommended. Most are made with alkali-refined linseed oil as a binder, which creates a strong, flexible paint film and yellows significantly less than cold press linseed oil, the traditional binder in oil paints. Select colors use safflower oil as a binder. Not only are both these vegetable oils completely non-toxic, they are commonly used in health and beauty products, so you can trust in their safety.
Deluxe Oil Painting Set
Robert Gamblin has selected an array of 12 colors to establish a beginner's palette and placed them in a finely made pine sketch box. The set contains the following materials:
This set gives painters a thoughtfully constructed palette of luscious oil colors cradled in a primed, ready-to-use, 12" × 6½" painting panel handcrafted in North America from sustainably forested birch. Colors include Cadmium Yellow Light, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Umber, Cadmium Red Light, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue, Viridian, Ivory Black, and Titanium White in 37 ml (1.25 oz) tubes.
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.
Pricing Note — Items with the Blick Best Price icon () on this page are not eligible for additional discounts due to pricing restrictions set by the manufacturer.
Artists can paint solvent—free with all Gamblin Artist’s Colors by mixing them with Gamblin’s Solvent-Free Gel Medium or with moderate amounts of Gamblin Refined Linseed Oil. For cleaning your brushes consider using Gamblin’s Gamsol Solvent, the safest artist’s solvent available. Or, simply wipe away excess paint from the bristles, work in a bit of Gamblin Refined Linseed Oil, then follow with water and soap or a brush cleaner.

Gamblin Artist's Oil Colors
I'm using Gamblin Artist oil Colors with my Rembrandt artist oil colors, the combinations between this two oils colors give me the opportunity to use a larger range of colors, Love it
Great warm white!
from Hartville, OH
I purchased the Gamblin Radiant White because I was taking a portrait painting workshop and I wanted some safer alternatives to lead based paints. I really like the buttery softness of the Radiant White.
from Regina, SK, Canada
I use Gamblin oils because I like the buttery smootness of them. THey go on to the canvas with no effort, smooth out or show texture depending on the brush and sytrole.
Gamblin products are the most pigmented, great consistency
from San Jose, Ca.
Gamblin is not the cheapest, but I'm not looking for the cheapest. I'm looking for great quality for a fair price. I love so many of the colors... Quinacridone Violet is beautiful, Ultramarine Blue is just the right blue... Napthol Red is heavily pigmented, I don't really need to use Cad Red.

These paints are very lovely in color and of a excellent consistency. They were received in a very timely fashion. Also received an extra tube of paint without charge. Thank you Dick Blick.
Gamblin Oil Paints Rock !
I switched from Dan Smith Oils (When they where no longer available) to Gamblin Oils. I really like their paints and the whole integrity of this small company based out of Portland , Oregon. If you are looking for studio size tubes of quality oil paints from a great company, look no further ! Go to Gamblin !

Have tried other brands, but keep coming back to this one. I like the consistency and their philosophy to make products that are safe for the environment and the artist.
The Gamblin Company was born in 1980 in a small garage in Portland, Oregon, where Robert Gamblin spent nine months mixing batch after batch of oil paint by hand. See what inspires Robert Gamblin and understand the integrity and dedication behind what makes some of the finest oil products around.
