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 artists 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.
