WINSOR and NEWTON PROFESSIONAL WATERCOLORS
Winsor & Newton ArtistsÆ Watercolors continue to hold an earned reputation for supreme quality, purity and reliability since their introduction in the 1830's. Made from the finest pigments available in the highest concentrations possible consistent with good handling qualities.
Every pigment is unique. Some are naturally opaque while others are transparent. Others offer very different qualities when applied in a thin film than when applied straight from the tube. Some offer dramatic tinting strength while others mix with great subtlety. We evaluate all pigments based upon the following qualities: mass tone (the colour straight from the tube),undertone (the bias of a colour when applied in a thin film), colour strength,and relative opacity. From the cadmiums, (which offer rich colour, greatopacity and covering power) to the phthalocyanines (which are characterized by high key colour, jewel-like natural transparency and tremendous tinting strength),Winsor & Newton uses only pigments that best represent the finest characteristics of a specific colour.
