Old Holland provides constant quality. The colours are varied and contribute to a beautifully finished art piece.“- Valorie, Ottawa Canada

The Rolls Royce of paint- in my opinion“- Pam, CT

I have used Old Holland paints for 10 years and I have introduced my adult students to Old Holland for the past 6 years. I paint and teach landscapes and figures in classical oil and use a lot of glazing and translucent and transparent paints. In both the transparent and opaque paints, the pigment is outstanding.“- Amelie, FL

These paints are expensive at first glance but the tinting strength is so strong that they last much longer than other brands. The chrome is stronger than most other brands and the paint does not dry up over time.”- David, Australia

The amount of pigment Old Holland packs into their tubes is impressive and makes them actually a value when you consider how far the paint will go. You can tell by weight alone that the tubes are packed with pigment which make for incredibly rich color saturated paintings“- Old Pro Painter, CO

There is very little that I can say about the quality of Old Holland Oil paints as I have used them for years for a reason. I love the saturation of the pigments and the fact taht they go a long way. Also Old Holland offers a wonderful selection of colors. I was happy to be able to purchase these colors on sale.“- Wildcloud, NC
