New! Williamsburg Artist Colors Neutral Grays Set! Available in July

Williamsburg Artist Oil Colors is offering a Neutral Grays Set based on the Munsell Color System. Neutral Grays allow the artist to adjust the value and chroma of any color without altering its hue. Neutral Grays range from N2 (darkest) to N8 (lightest). Together they produce balanced value “steps” for mixing with other colors. Colors in the new Williamsburg Neutral Grays set can be blended with all Williamsburg Artist Oil Colors to achieve differences in color values. Included in the set is one – 37ml tube each of Neutral Gray N2, Neutral Gray N4, Neutral Gray N6 and Neutral Gray N8.

Neutral Grays Set based on the Munsell Color System helps you adjust value and chroma of any color without altering hue. Take a quick look at the creation and use of neutral gray colors within the Williamsburg palette and explore neutralizing colors while preserving value using the Munsell color system as well as Grisaille, the practice of underpainting in grayscale then applying color glazes.
