The limited edition ‘Twilight’ collection of Professional Watercolours were introduced by Winsor and Newton last year. Inspired by the evening twilight, the six colours added to the Professional Watercolours range were designed to add drama and luxury with cool, clean shades and earthy colours. The most exciting part of the range was the introduction of a new black (Chromium Black) which offered shadowy granulations.

Transparency / Opacity: Opaque
Completely unique to Winsor & Newton, Chromium Black Professional Water Colour takes dark or monochrome scenes one step further by injecting an ethereal element to your composition. The opaque finish creates dim, darkened overtones, shadowy gradations and lends a dusky aura to paintings.
Winsor and Newton also created a range of watercolours inspired by deserts from around the world, from the Sahara, to the Australian Outback and the American Southwest. The colours reflect the sandy landscapes and piercing blue skies of the globe’s greatest deserts. They are made with lightfast pigments and exhibit unrivalled colour and performance.
