In all senses, Gamblin Artists Colors is a sight for sore eyes. First of all, just look at these colors. When was the last time you saw a paint with this kind of depth? Even when appearing on a page or screen, the textures pop like topography; you could reach out and touch it. But there’s an intangible quality there, too. There's no other way to put it: it has an aura. It’s like this paint radiates life, silently imparting the wisdom of the well-traveled. Instead of a generic color wheel, Gamblin Artists Colors reproduces the world around us in all of its multidimensional evocativeness. Put more simply, this paint has a personality, a selfhood that comes through in each shade's respective temperature and vibrancy. And the physicality of this paint is similarly brilliant, adding a wonderful, playful extra dimension into the mix; a kinetic energy that you, the artist, can shape and mold. Think of it all as less of a paint and more of a partner in creation. Never an obstacle, always a collaborator.
That Gamblin Artists Colors is so unique in the quality and ingenuity of its craft should come as no surprise to anyone who has followed its namesake’s career.
