Different from the 'usual' oil paints that I've used before. Very dark brown with grainy texture.

This is interesting paint. Not the easiest to work with, very thick and stiff. Oil separation straight from the tube. Lovely grey though.

Five stars although the paint is a Christmas present for me from my daughter, I have used Williamsburg paints a lot this year and adore them, so I'm guessing this is going to be just as good!

Like other Williamsburg paints, French Noir Indien has a vitality that I really like. I would describe it as a brown black and its colour falls between German Earth (a true black) and Burnt Umber. It’s in Williamsburg’s medium drying-rate range but I’ve found that it dries quite quickly.

When I’m using only one black paint, this is the one I choose. It’s a true black, yet it isn’t cold. It’s fully opaque and the surface texture is, in my view, excellent. It also dries very quickly for an oil paint.

In mass tone this is a lovely distinct black, warm yet not brownish and with a good texture. When thinned it makes a nice neutral grey.

Beautiful! As with all Williamsburg paints, such high quality. Switching to Williamsburg has really transformed my work. The Dutch Brown is so warm, will become a permanent addition to my palette.

The best black I have found, packed with pigment, would recommend.

As always with Williamsburg, such a high concentration of pigment and lasts on your palette for ages without drying out.

An exquisite yellow ochre, slightly gritty with a slight lemon cast.

Amongst the best available artisan paints.The specific characteristics of every pigment are retained in their production.Italian green ochre is a real discovery,with a beautiful undertone.

Nice consistency, has a proper graphite sheen to it. Not tried it straight from the tube, so don't know if it dries with the sheen.

Always the highest quality paint - well packaged by Jacksons so not mangled by carrier

Possibly one of my favourite colours - I have every available shade in pastels (Schminke) but this is the first time I have seen it as an oil paint. It is a rich colour and reminds me very much of the range of colours that Modigliani uses in his flesh tones.

Review

This is a good, dense, matt, brown/black colour but it is very, very stiff and difficult to squeeze out of the tube. However, a little goes a long way.

A FABULOUS colour. I was overjoyed to find this as an oil paint as I have it in acrylic and have had difficulty tracking it down in an oil.

This comment applies to all of the Williamsburg oil colours purchased ... These are quality paints, not cheap but worth it for particular pigments. Introductory free 10ml tubes a good way to get acquainted with unusual colours(eg Moserrat Orange) and to experience the quality.

The paint was very difficult to squeeze out of the tube. It came out eventually. I thought if I squeeze any harder I'll burst the tube. Okay after that. I wondered if the paint had been left in storage for a long time. I understand that handmade paints have a shorter shelf life than more production paints.

Pricey but they stock must have colours and are quality oils.

I use this colour a lot and have several brands but Williamsburg is my favourite. It is rich and blends well.

Lovely colour that can be used for floral still life or as a flesh tone. Love it. Williamsburg just has the edge as far as colour range is concerned.
