Real Media Paint Swatches


When studying traditional painting techniques a while back, I became obsessed with creating digital swatch sets of various real media, particularly oils and acrylics. I've included most of them here for anyone else with an interest.

For an idea of how to sort through the colors and pick the most useful, see my post on choosing real paint colors for painting digitally.

Acrylic Paint


Daler-Rowney Cryla Acrylics



Golden Acrylics 

(Golden updated their website a while back, leading me to create a new set of swatches. I actually prefer the old set however, so I've included it here as well.)


Liquitex Acrylics





Old Holland Oils


Williamsburg Handmade Oils



Winsor & Newton Artist Oils



Winsor & Newton Artisan Oils



Winsor & Newton Winton Oils

Winsor & Newton Cotman Watercolors



Photoshop Real Paint Swatches

(This swatch set comes with Photoshop; I've included it here for use in different programs, such as Manga Studio. These colors are more saturated than your typical real paints.)
