ChiKevin On one hand most paints are truly priced by quality more than just the name. Your brushes should be as if not more important Ithink. But in the case of paint the richness of some colors and amount of translucency becomes a factor in the cheaper ones. I'd buy a color or 2 in a couple of different brands and see what feels right in your price range.

TerryCurley I meant to say 'Master's Touch' not Masterpiece in my post. I don't even know if Masterpiece makes paints, they sure do make good canvases though.

TerryCurley I didn't know that Hobby Lobby had a house brand. I use M.Graham and Winsor Newton, but I've also used Masterpiece (the least expensive) if I have a large area to cover. Masterpiece doesn't have as much pigment as the others but at my level that is the least of my problems.

Buying Oil Paints - Where to go?

Hi guys! So this is my first thread and I am a very green painter. I just finished my first oil painting.

I am looking to get some more oil paints. So I am wondering where is the best place to get them and maybe what are the brands you like.

After some research, it looks as if M Graham is a safe bet and maybe Windsor Newton. Or maybe I could just stick to the Hobby Lobby house brand being so new at this.
