Winsor & Newton Professional Watercolours have been produced for more than 180 years and today benefit from modern technology as well as traditional principles, giving a paint of unsurpassed brilliance, opacity, purity and stability.

The range of Winsor & Newton Professional Watercolours has the greatest and most balanced choice of pigments and only use the very purest. These paints have unrivalled transparency so with thin washes the colour is present but the reflective white of the paper can still be seen. The colours provide brilliance and clean mixing and the natural characteristics of pigments mean that some will be more transparent than others. Winsor & Newton Professional Watercolours are all rated AA or A for permanence.

Winsor & Newton Professional Watercolours are available in 1/2 pans, whole pans, large pans, and tubes.

Review this product
New packaging, some reformulations, still great ! - I use a variety of different artist's brand watercolour paints, and I find consistent good quality with this paints. The only quibble is that the new packaging is very difficult to read.
It would also be beneficial to see the 37ml size in more colours.

Pans rewet easily, and the paints are a joy to use.
