Sennelier 

Sennelier is renowned for creating professional quality grade artists paints, pastels, inks and powdered pigments. The company was founded by Gustave Sennelier, a devoted chemist back in 1887. His legacy for quality and producing colours that only contain the highest quality pigments is still upheld today. Artists then and now regard the Sennelier palette as the ultimate standard of quality.
Sennelier has been in operation for 135 years and has created artists' materials for famous artists such as Sisley, Gauguin, Van Gogh and Pablo Picasso, to name but a few!

The traditions with the innovations "Sennelier has become the 'reference' brand that it is today for artists because it has always been able to combine the traditions of the old masters with the innovations provided by modern chemistry."

Sennelier Rive Gauche (Fast Drying Oils) - Wooden Box Set

 

Whilst retaining the key characteristics of oil painting, Rive Gauche fine oils dry twice as fast as classic oils. The outcome of this is a shortened drying time that does not restrict an artist's possibilities of working with fresh paint.
Less safflower oil is used to make the Rive Gauche oil colours. It is characterised by its low level of yellowing (50% less than linseed oil) and its excellent compatibility with pigments. This means colours mix cleanly and do not dilute as heavily when thinned with medium, mineral spirit or turpentine.
This wooden box set offers a range of key colours for all kinds of observational painting as well as a selection of brushes, mediums and a wooden palette.

Contents:

  • Wooden box with a carry handle.
  • 100ml bottle of oil paint thinner
  • 100ml bottle of liquid painting medium
  • 2 Raphäel hog bristle oil brushes, size 4 flat and size 4 round.
  • 12 tubes 40 ml + accessories

The sensuous pigments have a unique buttery texture.

This set is an ideal companion for the travelling oil painter as the box features a handy carry handle, buckles to keep the box shut tight and space enough for 22 x 40ml oil tubes.
