Comments about Marshall Retouching Extra Large Tube Set "A" Oil Set (15-Color 3/4x4" Tubes):

I thought the internet picture for MSELA showed paints what closely matched the Marshall's Hobby Set that I first purchased and thoroughly appreciated. Nowhere on the internet could I find an exact description of the colours for the MSELA set of large tubes, only that it is "15 assorted color tubes." So in the picture I tried to assess the colours and believed they closely matched the Hobby Set colours which I found to be suitable for landscape photo colouring. As it turned out what arrived was a set that had colours for portrait colouring, including four various blues, two backgrounds,khaki and two flesh tones. The photo showed what I thought to be tree green and oxide green, cadmium orange and sepia. And there was no Duolac as shown in the picture. The box was "factory wrapped," so it was the Marshall company that boxed it and no fault to B&H Photo. Even so I am not considering a return because the sizes are a bargain and somehow I can mix to get colours for my landscape painting. Marshall's photo oils are a good product. I purchased a Pebeo photo oil 12-colour starter set and some extra tubes, and they work just as well as Marshall's photo oils. I use a Walnut Hollow oil 24-pencil set for detail, even though they are not exactly matched to colours like Marshall's pencils. Rather than extender I use Winsor and Newton Liquin and Impasto. I substitute PMS with a mix of sunflower oil and Turpenoid to prepare the matte paper. I don't expect archival quality, but it works for me. I mix my Marshall's and Pebeo paints on some pictures and they work well together. Like a true painter I have to mix my basic Pebeo paints to make my colours. I keeps notes on colours. As one other posting says Pebeo has a "painterly effect." I like that description, and I agree. It makes photo colouring more interesting and challenging. I've digitalize a box of 1,200 black and white negatives and I am really into photo coloring vintage scenery from the late 1920's to the 1940's. A project like this is what the "lost art of photo colouring" is all about. Bottom line is that I appreciate being able to obtain the Marshall's photo oil paints to feed my hobby and passion. Thank you B&H Photo for having Marshall's products available. P.S The loss of one star is only because of the picture ad.
