The colours are chosen according to mass tone (colour from tube), undertone (bias of colour when in a thin film), colour strength, relative opacity and the character of the pigment in water colour, ie. granulating, staining or even wash. The resultant colour spectrum ensures the largest number of colours can be mixed from the range.

The optimum brilliance of every colour in the Artists' Water Colour range is unparalleled by any other water colour. Remarkably, this brilliance is combined with high permanence.
New Gamboge - pigment change
Originally produced using Gamboge, a coloured gum from the Garcinia plant, Artists' Water Colour Gamboge was discontinued in 2005, due to its toxic characteristics. Its replacement was a different shade, due to the pigments available and renamed New Gamboge.

Due to the above pigment discontinuation, New Gamboge, in both Professional Water Colour and Cotman, has been reformulated once again and, with advances in pigment technology, the colour is much closer to its original namesake, delivering greater authenticity within the spectrum.

The pigments have changed from Nickel Dioxine PY153 to Quinacridone PR209 & Azo Nickel Complex PY150

I ordered W&N New Gamboge in the discontinued pigment PY153 as opposed to the new formula and received 2 x 37 mil tubes today - excellent service (Posted on 16/03/2017)

Review by Martin Heneke
This is a great colour by Winsor and Newton, this colour has a deep depth and I love it. The whole Winsor and Newton range is great for new artist and professionals like myself, try it, it maybe more expensive but if you want those professional looking paintings you will not be sorry.
