Reeves Greyhound Oil Colour Set of 10 pieces 37mL tubes. These are the colours in the set: Titanium White, Azo Yellow Pale, Yellow Ochre, Alizarin Crimson, French Ultramarine, Phthalo Blue, Sap Green, Viridian Hue, Burnt Sienna, Burnt Umber. I had this when I was a kid as a gift, from my mother's friend because she learned that I'm joining painting class. I stopped painting and concentrated in academics when school schedule becomes more demanding. My oil colours and brushes were kept for I think more or less 18 years. Then last April, during Holy week, I bought canvass and found time to paint. At first, I was worried that the paint might be hard or stocked up inside the tube or pigments might have been powderized. When I squeezed the tube, the paint came out as smooth as before and consistency was maintained in mixing colours. Adhesion of colours to the canvass is good. Care and proper storage of materials is really important. I'll be able to paint more canvasses with this colours during free time. I searched for Reeves site in the net and was surprised to see new packaging of their colours in smaller mL tubes (though I'm still hoping to see the same set I have). Packaging were evolved but the quality remains and I think it's the secret behind continues progress of Reeves in the market since they started in 1766.
