Gamblin oil colors are luscious, intense, pigment-rich colors. Gamblin makes high quality oil based paints and oil colors that do not succumb to age. Gamblin Oil Colors are true to historic working properties, in a palette carefully constructed by America's premier colorman. Rather than copy any other style of paintmaking, Robert Gamblin developed his own. Made from the finest quality raw materials, Gamblin's oil paints invite artists to enjoy each color's unique tinting strength, transparency and texture. Gamblin oil paints are highly pigmented with just the right amount of linseed oil.
Terre Verte: Terre Verte, or green earth, was made from volcanic celadonite and/or a mineral of sedimentary origin; Robert Gamblin mixed this color because true natural green earth pigment is unpredictable in color and availability. Gamblin Terre Verte is an excellent color for grisaille; it has a weak masstone and very muted tint.
