Welcome to dickblick
Gamblin Artist's Oil Colors are crafted by hand with the well-being of artists, their work, and the environment in mind. True to historic working properties, yet safer and more permanent, they combine the best traditions of the past with the latest technical innovations, giving you the freedom to create without compromise.
Made with the finest grades of pigment available (yes, there are differences), Gamblin Artist's Oils have luscious working properties, and each color possesses unique characteristics in terms of texture, undertone, and tinting strength. The range of colors includes both historically accurate paints and modern, synthetically derived hues. For everything from traditional realism to contemporary abstraction, you'll find your ideal colors within the Gamblin line.
All Gamblin Artist's Oil Paints are completely non-toxic when used as recommended. Most are made with alkali-refined linseed oil as a binder, which creates a strong, flexible paint film and yellows significantly less than cold press linseed oil, the traditional binder in oil paints. Select colors use safflower oil as a binder. Not only are these vegetable oils completely non-toxic, they are commonly used in health and beauty products, so you can trust in their safety.
This set gives painters a thoughtfully constructed palette of luscious oil colors cradled in a primed, ready-to-use, 12" × 6½" painting panel handcrafted in North America from sustainably forested birch. Colors include Cadmium Yellow Light, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Umber, Cadmium Red Light, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue, Viridian, Ivory Black, and Titanium White in 37 ml (1.25 oz) tubes.
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.
Pricing Note — Items with the Blick Best Price icon () on this page are not eligible for additional discounts due to pricing restrictions set by the manufacturer.
Artists can paint solvent—free with all Gamblin Artist’s Colors by mixing them with Gamblin’s Solvent-Free Gel Medium or with moderate amounts of Gamblin Refined Linseed Oil. For cleaning your brushes consider using Gamblin’s Gamsol Solvent, the safest artist’s solvent available. Or, simply wipe away excess paint from the bristles, work in a bit of Gamblin Refined Linseed Oil, then follow with water and soap or a brush cleaner.

By PleinView Studio
from Alamosa, Colorado
As a professional landscape painter and teacher, I am always looking at products that give good value for the money. These brushes are my first choice, for my own use - and I recommend them with confidence.
Very pleased with my purchase.
from Franklin, TN
Attended a Dawn Whitelaw Workshop and added a few of the colors from her palette. Have been very pleased with the quality, strength of chroma, and blending ability. Really have enjoyed the cool white and warm white and 3 grays.
from Pittsfield, ME
First time using artist oil paints and I love them! So easy to work with and the colors are beautiful. Worth the money to invest in a solid set of pro oil paints
Cobalt teal Pb28
Gamblin offers a very nice Cobalt teal (Pb28 Cobalt blue) comparable in hue (and price) to Sennelier Turquoise light (Pg50 Cobalt green) which is a bit lighter in value.
Gamblin paints are consistently satisfactory
from Perry, Ga
Gamblin oil paints are consistently rich and creamy and the colors very saturated.
from Atlanta, GA
Wider range of colors than some competitors and a good value.
The Gamblin Company was born in 1980 in a small garage in Portland, Oregon, where Robert Gamblin spent nine months mixing batch after batch of oil paint by hand. See what inspires Robert Gamblin and understand the integrity and dedication behind what makes some of the finest oil products around.
