From the manufacturer: Utrecht Studio Series Oil Colors offer great workability, consistent performance, and dependable lightfastness at an affordable price. Available in a concise assortment of popular colors, these medium-bodied oils are the perfect introductory choice for students and anyone new to oil painting.
Utrecht Studio Series Oils are made in Brooklyn, New York.
Note from Jon: Utrecht Studio Series is currently one of my two favorite brands of oil paint (alongside Gamblin 1980). The quality is very good compared to some other student grade paints I’ve tried. Utrecht seems to have a bit more additive than Gamblin, but the flip side is the larger tubes are less expensive.
For information on commissioning Jon Amdall for a painting, see the portrait request page.

But if you prefer videos, there are quite a few available on the Amdall Gallery YouTube channel. Here are some potentially helpful videos:
