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 developed over more than 170 years of manufacturing and quality control expertise. It has 120 colours in the range, offering the widest spectrum of all the Winsor & Newton oil paint ranges. The full range of 119 colours are available in 37ml tubes, with 40 colours also available in 200ml tubes.
Winsor & Newton uses only the purest of pigments in the manufacture of its Artists' Oil Paint line, ensuring the cleanest, brightest colors, which in turn produce the best color mixtures. Maximum quality control throughout all stages of production, plus the selection of the most suitable drying oils and pigment dispersion methods, ensure that each color's properties are preserved. Winsor & Newton's quality standards include the use of single pigments wherever possible to create individual colors. Combined with the strength of color, single pigments provide a wide color range in themselves and offer cleaner, brighter mixtures with an infinite range of hues. This is particularly important for greens, violets, and oranges. There are 80 single pigment colors in the Artists' Oil Paint range. Because every Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Color contains the maximum pigment consistent with good handling qualities, it achieves the optimum tinting strength when reduced with White. While Artists' Oil Paints are formulated to provide as even a reflective surface as possible, it's important to note that the reflective quality of the oil film is affected by a wide variety of factors. Because each pigment requires differing volumes of oil in formulation, the surface sheen may differ from colour to colour. The addition of solvent, and the use of additive mediums will alter surface sheen as well as the ground used.
Winsor & Newton has also developed permanent alternatives for the less durable traditional colours, without compromising the handling properties consistent with oil paints. Of the 120 colours in the Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Paint range, 119 are now classified as "permanent for artists' use," which aids the longevity of paintings. Although Alizarin Crimson is only given a "B" rating (moderately durable), it has been part of the Artists' Oil Colour range for more than 130 years and is still considered a key colour by many contemporary artists.
The long drying time of W&N Artists' Oil Paints range is also a key feature of the attractiveness and versatility of oil painting. The colour remains soft and wet for a few days and therefore allows corrections to be made from day to day. All colours will become touch dry in thin films in 2-12 days. The different reaction of each pigment when mixed with oil results in the different dry rates. Each colour is individually formulated to optimise its drying rate, which helps artists to avoid the problems of slow drying underlayers. However, the following list is a guide to the likely variations:
Fast Drying (around two days): Permanent Mauve (manganese), Cobalt Blues, Prussian Blue, Raw Sienna, Umbers, Flake, Foundation and Cremnitz Whites (lead). Medium drying (around five days): Winsor Blues and Greens (phthalocyanines), Burnt Sienna, Cobalt Violet and Greens, Ultramarine Blues, Mars colours (synthetic iron oxides), Sap Green, Permanent Alizarin Crimson, Ochres, Cadmiums, Titanium White, Zinc White, Lamp Black, Ivory Black, Pyrrols, Bismuth Yellow, Perylenes. Slow drying (more than five days): Winsor Yellows and Orange (arylides), Quinacridones, Alizarin Crimson.
Liquin Original is the perfect medium to speed the drying time of oil colour. It will speed the drying by approximately 50%.
