Throughout history, the Mediterranean has been a place that has united cultures and civilisations and, along with it, colours and tints that are unique to this beautiful area.
The colours in this range are especially suited for warm, bright and luminous paintings. The grain (pigment particle) size of these colours is larger than for other oil colours and the paste density thicker, with brush strokes accentuated so it is recommended that hard-bristle, ox hair or synthetic brushes are used to get the best results.
These colours can be thinned with Walnut or Safflower oil but not with traditional solvent thinners (eg White Spirit, Turpentine) as they weaken the paste. To achieve the best results with these colours it is recommended by the manufacturers to prepare the canvas with uniform, soft coats of pastel pink or yellowish pink obtained with ochre or the Italian Natural Earth colours.
