A smaller, more convenient 38ml tube was introduced in 2018 to replace the original 75ml (some colours may be supplied in that size for the same price). Many colours are also available in 225ml size tubes.
Due to their careful formulation, Georgian Oil Colours generally require very limited quantities of mediums so can be used freely straight from the tube allowing the artist to concentrate on spontaneous creativity.
They are named after George Rowney the company’s founder, enriching contemporary artistic expression through modern and brilliant colours, optimal pigment loads and a very satisfying feel under both brush and knife.
