For students, amateur painters, and professional artists using high volumes of color, Winton Oil Color is the ultimate high-quality yet economical oil paint.
Winton brings together the best of Winsor & Newton paint-making tradition with modern technology. Rather than lessening the pigment content to create a more affordable paint, Winton Oils are formulated using moderately priced pigments that still possess good covering power and tinting strength — including genuine, excellent-quality cadmiums and cobalts. While Winton Oils can’t match the superior pigment load of Winsor & Newton Professional Oils, they are still much stronger than the artist-quality lines of many other brands.
Winton Oils are offered in a range of 49 colors, and every color is individually formulated to bring out the best natural characteristics of the pigment. These paints have a more uniform consistency than Winsor & Newton Professional Oils and are slightly stiffer, offering excellent retention of brush strokes and knife marks. The gloss level varies from color to color, but again they have a more uniform sheen across the range as compared to the Professional line.
All colors are either AA or A rated and are recommended as permanent for artists’ use.
