Titanium white, cadmium yellow lemon, light ochre, vermilion, crimson, burnt sienna, burnt umber, emerald green, chrome oxide green, ultramarine blue, dark cobalt blue and ivory black - the shades offer a balanced colour palette of warm and cool nuances.

The compact compilation of oil paints is practical for school, study and work, because the basic colours can be easily mixed with each other.

Oil paint has a significantly longer drying time than other paints. This is an advantage that allows the artwork to be continuously changed and colour transitions to be seamless. The applied paint remains 'open' for a longer period of time and can be painted over and over again without the addition of painting agents. This creates works of art with attention to detail and representations of light and shadow. The gloss of the moist KREUL el Greco Oil Paint remains even when dry and puts the painting in the right light.

Painting with traditional colours may seem a little intimidating. But it doesn't need to be so. With the KREUL el Greco Oil Paints Set, great art is very uncomplicated. The colours can be applied directly to the canvas of the stretched frame. A wooden palette is recommended for mixing. We first paint the basic shapes roughly with the SOLO GOYA artist brush Goldhair Synthetics and then become more precise with each new application of paint. A few light reflections in titanium white and shadows in ivory black make the work of art appear three-dimensional. It was so easy - we are thrilled to see how playful painting can be. The oily paint however requires thorough brush cleaning. First, the remaining paint is wiped off the brush with a clean cloth. Then we dissolve the remaining paint resides from the brush with water and curd soap. What water and soap cannot remove, turpentine substitute can do.

Practical, compact and colourful - the KREUL el Greco Oil Paints Set is a fantastic gift for anyone who loves to paint. The basic set of oil paints is a nice present, together with a brush and stretcher it makes a welcome surprise. If you want to give a large palette of creativity as a gift, choose another basic set.
