Comments about Lefranc & Bourgeois Artists' Oils:
I've been using Lefranc oils for a few years now. The quality and price has stayed consistent. They are very brushable out of the tube and do not require medium. I'd recommend them to any level of artist.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Purity at a great value
By Happy Painter
The color purity of this paint is extremely good. Don't be deceived by the economical price tag. I bought a few tubes to add a couple of bright, vibrant colors to my more traditional palette. They have a nice consistency, with intense color. When mixed with other colors, they remain vibrant. Many paints within this price range become dull and muddy when mixed with other colors, but not these. I am very pleased with these paints and plan to add many more colors from this brand to my palette. Another great thing about this paint is that it does not smell. I am sensitive to odors and I do not notice any odor when I use this paint.
I love this white.
This was recommended by other artists and I tried it and now I love it too. I use other whites too, but this one is nearly always on my palette. Buttery and nice and the price is great!

I find that these oil paints are of a good quality, vivid colour, and generally a buttery texture. Less expensive then other paints of similar quality.The best thing I like about them are the caps, easy to remove and place back on the tube. Other paints don't have this feature , so somebody was thinking on the design of the caps. I will continue to use them as long as they are reasonably priced.
Excellent white oil paint.
from Glenpool, OK
I saw this recommended by another artist who said Richard Schimd also uses it sometimes and decided to try it. I love it. It has a buttery, nice quality and you can't beat the price. I still use other titanium white favorites too but highly recommend this one.
The best oil paint.

A great, buttery white at a great price!
I had purchased this titanium white before and really liked it so I ordered it again. Initially, I had bought it when I read another artist highly recommended it and also, that a great painter of our time sometimes uses it. It's buttery and can be used thick and blends great with other oils.

I'm an oil painter, so I can make any paint work for me.
from Vermont, US
I have a few tubes of Lefranc and I wanted to test the Chromium Oxide Green (I am a landscape painter). The quality versus the price for this color is incredible. I warmly refer it without restriction.I also really appreciate not having to adapt my painting habits and not work with medium when using Lefranc along with my other brands. Indeed, Lefranc has more of a soft consistency.However, the palette offered is quite limited. Having a «go-to» brand is necessary.
