Welcome to dickblick
Utrecht has been carefully handcrafting Utrecht Artists' Oil Colors in its Brooklyn, New York, mill for more than 50 years. These fine oil colors are prized by professional artists around the world for their brilliant color, buttery texture, outstanding lightfastness, and excellent long-term performance.
High pigment concentrations guarantee superior tinting strength and remarkable vibrancy straight from the tube. A wide range of single pigment colors produces excellent mixing results.
Don't be misled by the affordability of Utrecht Artists' Oils — they are comparable in quality to leading professional brands costing significantly more.

Good quality paint at reasonable price!
Been using Utrecht paint for 15 years, it's my favorite. Tried many others but always come back to Utrecht paint. As good if not better than more expensive paints.
Reasonably priced Cadmium
By Mart Art
from Milford, DE
I use Cadmium Yellow light extensively for creating my greens. It is one of the most reasonably priced for cadmiums. There is no difference in the quality of this paint over more expensive brands.

great texture and a pleasure to paint with....
My first purchase of Ultrecht, very satisfied.
from St. Petersburg, FL
The paint is a perfect consistency and very smooth.
The quality has been changed since last year
I've been using this brand for around 10 years ,The consistency has been changed since last year .some very delicate pigments like cerulean blue PB 35 which i bought a couple of month ago the purity and the consistency are questionable.or other colors like Manganese Violet PV 16 it is so oily and runs out .The ratio between pigment and oil IS NOT right,,,this brand is not the same as it used be,,I called the customer service which is Blick company now several months ago,someone over the phone wrote it down what i said but i didn't get that feeling that it matters ! because i just got another tube recently the same problem,, i am a professional painter and have been studying materials and pigments ,,,I don't like wasting my time and money using and dealing with some products are less serious and sensitive than i am. i consider this brand fair student brand Not an Artist type anymore !
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Best service in the industry
from Sun Valley, ID
I have used these oil paints for most of my 20+ year career. The service from this company is outstanding, particularly when you have something go wrong with the order or when there is a problem (rare, but it does happen). Thanks for being a consistent winner in the service department.
This is the One for Me
from Beaufrot, S.C.
What artist inspires you most? is a question that is answered differently by different people, sometimes evoking more than one response from any given person.. Such is the case for brands of paint. I have used at least six, and those in just the past five years. My favorite is Utrect! It covers my canvases with buttery smooth, well saturated color that is rich and powerful. And it is manufactured right here in the good old U S of A.
Enjoy painting with Utrecht paints will continue to order
Will continue ordering my paints from DIck Blick, paints recommended from instructor.
My favorite white
By Deborah Lazar
from Putney, Vermont
I tested a number of whites and this one won. It is a slightly warm tone, and mixes well. It dries medium fast. Meaning you don't have to wait weeks for the white to dry. Excellent value.
