Oil colours have been used in various forms since the fifteenth century. The popularity of oil colour can be attributed to its extraordinary versatility. It offers excellent results from the traditional painting techniques of blending and glazing, impasto and scumbling.
Winsor & Newton began making colour in 1832, swiftly developing and subsequently maintaining a reputation for unparalleled excellence and consistency worldwide. The most recent advances in pigment technology have allowed us to build upon our already high standards and further improve the range for artists. The improvements are a result of using new and unique pigments, which offer increased permanence and greater colour strength.
