Welcome to dickblick
Van Gogh Oil Colors have been developed for artists who are searching for quality and exceptional value.
These pure-pigment paints are particularly easy to mix and work with because all colors in the range have virtually the same degree of gloss and viscosity, and require about the same amount of time to dry. With good to excellent lightfastness, the colors remain powerful and brilliant over time.
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.

Best for a student
from Brooklyn, NY
Comments about Van Gogh Oil Colors:
This is high quality student grade paint. Price is unbeatable, so you may mix, experiment and do not worry about quantities you throw away. Best to get used to simple pigments. Earth colors are amazing. Cadmiums quite weak but it's ok. Very good to paint in middle and low intensity keys. If you are learning and on a budget and work a lot it's your choice. You can paint a painting with this paint. Definitely.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I really prefer Van Gogh oils because they flow well and apply smoothly in any climate. I do not have to add a lot of linseed oil to get the texture I need to do my blending on the canvas. Even in the winter in sunny California, it can get cold in the studio and other brands of paint are difficult to mix (or in some cases, squeeze from the tube). The color is always true. I order Van Gogh oils first unless they do not have a color I need.

We love Van Gogh Oils!!!

VanGogh Oils are always consistent in color and quality. Our students use these from beginning oil painting through advanced painting. Extremely affordable for a great product.
Great Colors but exceptionally Oily!

I want to love these paints but the big thing is the separation of the oil in the tube....When YOu first use it goe carefully or you will get a spurt of oil all over you. It comes from tow things....one is a lack of emulsifiers or thickeners, or from the actual milling process, another reason is the tube has some age on it . All in all the color itself is 5 stars, yet I give it 3 stars because of the separation. I buy a color by it's pigment number and not the name which can be misleading. I would recommend Pebeo XL for Student grade, that seems to be more consistent. For My Students I would recommend Pebeo XL or Winton.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have oil painting all my life. All of 50 years mostly as a hobby. I discovered Blick art stores when I moved to Las Vegas so knew of their great selection and prices. When I moved out of state not near a Blick store I started buying my paints online and found a much wider range of selection and great pricing. I use the Van Gogh oils and I am very satisfied with pricing, product and delivery.
Great for students
Consistent on quality and color. Perfectly priced for art students
Solid color value looks great
Van Gogh oils are a consistent value with good working qualities.They have strong color and mix well with just about everything else.
Wonderfuly priced cadmiums and cobalts
from Boston, MA
I have all of Van Gogh's cadmium colors and their cobalt blue, and they've been serving me very well. The cad red light and all the cad yellows are main stays on my palette. These paints seem to dry quite slow, but it doesn't bother me. For the price, these are truly fantastic.
Van Gogh Oil Colors are a traditional oil paint formulated with the beginning painter and value conscious customer in mind. A quality paint that won't break the bank. See why this paint is a smart choice!
