Every Winsor & Newton Artists’ Oil Colour is individually formulated to enhance each pigment’s natural characteristics and ensure stability of colour. By exercising maximum quality control throughout all stages of manufacture, selecting the most suitable drying oils and method of pigment dispersion, the unique individual properties of each colour are preserved.
Combined with over 170 years of manufacturing and quality control expertise, the formulation of Artist’s Oil Colour ensures the best raw materials are made into the world’s finest colours. There are 120 colours in 37ml tubes and 32 colours from the range are also available in the 200ml tubes.
Winsor and Newton Artists’ Oil Colours owe their reputation for supreme quality to the careful selection of the very finest pigments. To produce colours of reliable consistency and a high standard of colour matching demands a combination of the traditional crafts of the artist colourmen and modern colour technology skills. The colours in this range each contain the maximum pigment content with good handling qualities and achieve the highest possible tinting strength when reduced with white.
The buttery consistency of Artists’ Oil Colour, together with the smell of linseed oil, are the two characteristics most admired by oil painters. The colour qualities and blendability of oil paint can’t be beaten by other media. The consistency of the body of Winsor & Newton colours can retain brush or palette knife marks or it can be thinned to the very finest of glazes.
Winsor and Newton Artists’ Oil Colour hand-painted colour chart
Selecting your paints based on a printed colour chart or colours on a web page will give you an approximation of the colour, but as well as not being completely accurate, they are not paint so the shine, opacity, colour strength and other qualities will not be visible. The most accurate (and enjoyable) way of choosing your colours is using a hand-painted colour chart.. The actual oils you are buying are painted onto card and labelled with the name, colour number, opacity and lightfastness rating. The colour is drawn down from a thick layer to show the mass tone to a thin layer to show the undertone. By combining this with all the technical information supplied on the printed colour chart like opacity, pigment names and numbers, permanence and more you can better understand the colours you are choosing and using.
