Welcome to dickblick
Artist and master paintmaker Art Graham put years of experience at other companies behind him and started his own business based on his own vision and values. The result is a paint, manufactured without fillers or additives, that goes back to some of oil painting's finest traditions.
M. Graham Artists' Oil Colors are made with a walnut oil binder, an alternative to traditional linseed oil that's been preferred by artists for centuries. In fact, today it's known that Renaissance masters such as Da Vinci and Durer generally favored walnut oil over linseed oil. Walnut oil provides rich, vibrant color that is naturally more alive and brilliant than traditional linseed oil. Free flowing and slow drying, M. Graham's walnut oil formulation enables delicate passages of finely blended color that retain their brilliance over time.
Set of 5 Colors with Free Mediums
Contains five, 1.25 oz tubes of M. Graham Solvent Free Oils including Azo Yellow, Napthol Red, Ultramarine Blue, Phthalocyanine Green and Titanium White. Also includes FREE 2 oz bottle of Walnut Oil and Walnut Alkyd Medium (a non-toxic, environmentally responsible alternative to solvent).

Comments about M. Graham Artists' Oil Colors:
As I strive for a solvent-free studio, this is the brand of paint I use 95% of the time. I find the texture to be fantastic. It does have a tendency to separate in the tube. Working the tube with your fingers with the cap still on can help a little. I do wish better quality tubes were utilized as a couple of mine have leaked. I also like the fact that it's manufactured in the Pacific NW (which is where I live). Although, you can buy less expensive oil paint, I believe this is the best quality for the money. It's virtually odorless.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love the consistency
I have Cad red light, cad yellow light, and yellow orchre. I'm not so experienced to comment on pigment, etc. (They are brilliant and clean though) I absolutely love the creamy consistency that comes out of the tube.
Really like this paint
I really like the M. Graham paints and walnut oil. Creamy consistency and workablilty.
Azo Coral Limited Time Only
from Somewhere in the Lands of Mary
I have reviewed M Graham Paints before, and would repeat the same thing I've said there, but right now as of 2016, with the limited time carrying of Azo Coral make sure you pick up some while it lasts. This is a spectacular mixed warm orange color that fills a unique color space in their line and I personally hope they can one day add it or the two pigments it contains (PO 62 and PR 254) to their line up because they are both amazing colors in their own right, but together provide the best red leaning orange I've yet found.As always, M Graham's paints are simply the highest pigment loading you can get for the money, with the most vivid, chromatic, and smoothest handling available. And get Azo Coral while it lasts!
I would buy this product again and again.

Creamy, strong pigment, workable, covers well.
My go to paints - best color
from Cape Cod, MAssachusetts
I use M Graham oil paints for almost all my colors (there are a couple that I use of different brands for very specific reasons not having to do with quality). I find the colors to be very intense and clean and I like the walnut oil matrix. I am too sensitive to solvents to use them in my painting, and so I use walnut oil and a non-solvent medium with palette knives to paint. M Graham materials are excellent and very reasonably priced.
M Graham blends beautifully.

Used the m graham fast drying titanium white oil to cover an oil painting for repainting. worked great
These paints are incredibly pigmented and have a very nice buttery texture. I bought the 5 color set along with some student grade paints as a starter set and the difference is definetly noticeable. I have had a problem with two of my paint tubes leaking out a small amount of oil but this problem is easily fixed. I definetly recommend these and will be purchasing more in the future for sure!
One of my Favorite Brands of Oil Paints
from Vista, CA
I love that so many of M. Graham's oil paints are single pigment. I also love that they're made with walnut oil since I'm sensitive to linseed oil. AND they're smooth and buttery with great pigment strength.
