Love, Love, Love L&B
Comments about Lefranc & Bourgeois Artists' Oils:
I've been painting professionally for many years. For much of that time, I used Rembrandt oil paint which I loved. When Rembrandt prices soared out of reach, I tried L&B and now use it almost exclusively. The L&B colors are beautiful, bright and true -- great for impressionist work. The paint comes out of the tube in tact (no oily separation,) has a very amiable consistency and mixes well (including with other brands.) From my experience, it is also light-fast (haven't experienced any fading or dullness over time.) It is very similar to Rembrandt but is far more affordable. I love it and highly recommend it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Zinc-Titanium White Oil Paint by LeFranc
By Deborah the Painter
from Upstate New York
This product was recommended to me by another painter. I had been using a titanium white for years. I found the viscosity very much different in this product. It's much thicker, heavier, shows brushstrokes more. It seems a warmer white that the titanium alone and I understand that with the addition of Zinc it helps the paint layers dry from the inside out---rather than the surface drying first which opens the door to surface cracking. If you paint thinly a medium might be required from time to time.I would recommend this to the serious painter.

I do mainly traditional , Tonalist inspired Landscapes and some Still Lifes. I am also recently retired and don't have a fortune to spend on supplies. These professional quality paints are a good, solid value. (Plus I can't help liking that they are French and the company has been producing them for hundreds of years.)

I like this product. It has nice buttery quality and is a good price.
A quality paint at economical prices
from Houma, LA
I've read where an instructor labeled LeFranc paints as student grade. I'm no expert, but I've experienced nothing but good results with LeFranc's Artists' oils. And, the prices are hard to beat.
excellent flow--white, white color
from new jersey
holds it color--smooth on the canvas
Excellent Paint line.
Cost to quality, this is one of the best. I use a combination of these and Rembrandt artist oil paints. These are extremely similar to Rembrandt, at a much lower price. The paint is buttery and extremely smooth working very well with Rembrandt. The pigment load is up there with the other artist series paints as well. All around great paint line with very thought out pigment choices for their paints for solid colors and beautiful transparent colors.
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.
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!
