Exciting new Utrecht Artist Oil colors from Blick Art Materials!

Recently, I talked about how much I loved the rich colors and smooth consistency of Utrecht Artists oil paints. Whether you’re using them straight from the tube or thinned with NOOD odorless thinner, it’s really a top-quality paint. Now, Blick is introducing 10 new paints from Utrecht that you need to know about. Three new vivid colors, Blue, Magenta, and Turquoise Deep create a nice group of colors. The warm and cool grey tones, “old warm white”, “Spectrum Black”, and unique neutral hues like “warm blush” and “Plum grey” expand your range of possibilities.

If you’re working on mastering color, especially neutral hues and color temperature, I would recommend grabbing an 8×10 Blick Premier canvas, and create a painting like I did here, using ONLY these new colors. This will force you out of your old color-mixing habits and help you to see the power of these colors to describe color temperatures and neutral colors.

These new Utrecht Artists Oils are found at select Blick stores an online at, where you can pick them up and learn more about these great new colors!
