Excellent paints. I have recently tried out a few of Michael Harding's oil paints. I particularly liked his version of Raw Sienna as it is much more of an earthy brown than other manufacturers' versions of this colour that I have previously used. I noticed the pigment in the Michael Harding Raw Sienna is PB7 rather than the pigments PY42 and PY43 found in some other brands. (Posted on 16/03/2017)

It is difficult to conceive any paints which are better than those made by Michael Harding. (Posted on 16/03/2017)
Review by Alison Partridge
So far, all of my reviews of Michael Harding's oil colours have been very good; but I'm really not sure what to make of this one. It may just be that this Raw Sienna is wrong for my palette, as it contains far too much green for my liking. As soon as I add it to another colour, say a semi-transparent yellow, the mixture will acquire a greenish aspect. This can be useful for producing muted landscape greens, but not for mimicking ochre or creating earthy browns. I might try the Winsor and Newton colour as an alternative, or Michael Harding's Transparent Oxide Yellow. However, the paint itself, like all Michael Harding colours, is beautifully transparent and full of pigment. (Posted on 20/08/2015)
