  • Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Colour is unmatched for its purity, quality and reliability - a success which is reflected in its world-wide reputation amongst professional artists. 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 180 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.
  • As the cost of the pigments used varies, so does the price charged for the colour. Therefore Winsor & Newton have grouped colours together in 'series'. The higher the series number, the higher the price. You can find the series number both on the colour chart and on the tube.

  • Pigments : Winsor & Newton’s quality standards include the use of single pigments wherever possible to create individual colours. Combined with strength of colour, single pigments provide a wide colour range in themselves and offer cleaner, brighter mixtures with an infinite range of hues. This is particularly important for greens, violets and oranges. Single pigment 'secondaries' considerably broaden the artists' available spectrum. There are 80 single pigment colours in the range. Like all raw materials, pigments are available in various grades. W&N use only the purest of pigments ensuring the cleanest, brightest colours, which in turn produce the best colour mixtures.
  • Consistency & Texture :The buttery consistency of Artists' Oil Colour, together with the smell of linseed oil, are the two characteristics most admired by oil painters. These qualities are unbeaten by other media. The stiff consistency of Winsor & Newton colours can retain brush or palette knife marks or it can be thinned to the very finest of glazes.
  • Covering Power : Covering Power not only comes from pigment strength, but also from the greater thickness of colour, which results from the stiff consistency associated with Winsor & Newton's Artists' Oil Colour. Covering power is particularly linked to the most opaque colours like Titanium White and the Cadmiums.
  • Transparency & Opacity : Pigments vary in their transparency by nature. Remember that the level of transparency of a colour is relative to other colours. Transparent colours are used for glazing and tinting, providing optical colour mixtures and depth of colour to the painting surface.
  • Permanence : Since 1832 Winsor & Newton have been developing permanent alternatives for the less durable traditional colours, without compromising the handling properties of their oils. As a result, the permanence of the colour range has been improved beyond the dreams of past painters.
