The Winsor and Newton Winton Oil Colours are a traditional range of oil paints, made from moderately priced pigments, formulated for student and amateur artists or more accomplished painters requiring large volumes of colour within moderate cost limits. The economical cost has been achieved through the use of moderately priced pigments rather than lessening the pigment content to an unacceptable level.
We use 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 infinite hues. This is particularly important for violets, greens and oranges. Single pigment 'secondaries' considerably broaden the artist's available spectrum. As with Artists' Oil Colour, every colour in the Winton oil paint range is individually formulated to take advantage of the natural characteristics of each pigment and to ensure the stability of the colour. A high level of pigmentation provides good covering power and tinting strength. While it can't match the superior pigment load of Artists' Oil Colour, the Winton Oil Paints are much stronger than many other artists' quality ranges. Winton Oil Paint is formulated to reflect the characteristics of each of the various pigments, ensuring that synthetic organics such as Phthalocyanines and Quinacridones (ie. "Winsor" or "Permanent colours") deliver maximum transparency, whilst Cadmiums and Earth colours offer excellent opacity.
The application of traditional skills and modern colour chemistry techniques has resulted in a range of 49 carefully selected Winton Oil Colours including genuine cadmiums and cobalt, which are of excellent quality. The full range of 49 colours are available in both 37ml and 200ml tubes. The Winton oil paint range has a more uniform consistency than Artists' Oil Colours and is slightly stiffer. It offers excellent retention of brush and palette knife strokes. Winsor & Newton formulation, manufacture and quality control ensure a product of absolute excellence. As with the Artists' Oil Colour range, the surface sheen of Winton is largely due to the pigment used. The level of gloss will therefore vary, although Winton is more uniform across the range.
All colours will become touch dry in 2-12 days. The different drying rates are due to the different reaction of each pigment when mixed with oil. Winsor and Newton formulate colours to optimise drying rates, helping artists to avoid the problems of slow drying underlayers. However, the following list is a guide to the likely variations:
Fast drying (around 2 days): Prussian Blue, Raw Sienna, Umbers. Medium Drying (around 5 days): Phthalo Blue and Viridian Hue (phthalocyanines), Burnt Sienna, Ultramarine Blues, Synthetic Iron Oxides, Ochres, Titanium White, Zinc White, Lamp Black, Ivory Black. Slow Drying (more than 5 days): Cadmium Hues (arylamides), Permanent Rose (Quinacridone), Alizarin Crimson Hue.
As with all oil paintings, to avoid yellowing of the oil, paintings should not be allowed to dry in places with continuous darkness or high humidity.
The many whites in the Winton Oil Paint range ensure that artists have the widest possible selection, as in every other part of the spectrum. These include: Painting Whites, Titanium White, Flake White Hue, Zinc White, and Soft Mixing White.
