Winton is a traditional range of oil colours, 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 application of traditional skills and modern colour chemistry techniques has resulted in a range of carefully selected Winton Oil Colours which are of excellent quality.
Winton Oil Colour offers quality and affordability by using moderately priced pigments, rather than reducing the pigment load and compromising colour performance. 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 range is much stronger than many other artists' quality ranges.
The Winton range has a more uniform consistency than Artists' Oil Colour and is slightly stiffer. It offers excellent retention of brush and palette knife strokes.
The sheen of Winton is largely due to the pigments used so the gloss level varies across individual colours. This can be controlled through the selection of surface, the addition of solvent and the mediums used.
