New Tip Title: Why Buy Student Grade Oil Paints? New Tip: Student grade oil paints come in fewer colors than those of professional grade oil paints and the pigment in the student grade oil paints is not quite as high as that in professional oil paints. Why would anyone want to purchase student grade oil paints after knowing these things? One simple reason is that the student grade oil paints are cheaper than professional grade. It makes sense that someone just starting out in oil painting or an art student would want to buy student grade oil paints because they are such a money saver!
I am a begining oil painter. I was wondering what colors you suggest a beginer buy. I`ve heard students in my classes talking about how they use only a few "basic" colors, in which they can mix a large range of colors from. Do you have any tips?
