Winton Student Oils
Winton Oil Colours are a range of moderately priced oil colours suitable for artists requiring good quality colour at a uniform and affordable price. Notwithstanding price, Winton has a high level of pigmentation which provides good covering power and is stronger than many artists’ quality ranges. Winsor & Newton formulation, manufacture and quality control ensure Winton is a product of absolute excellence.
The range of colours is chosen according to mass tone (colour from the tube), undertone (bias of colour when in a thin film), strength and relative opacity. The resultant colour spectrum ensures the maximum number of colours can be mixed from the range.
Winton colours may be safely intermixed with other Winsor & Newton Oil ranges with the exception of (a) thin alkyd films over thick oil films and (b) thick Oilbar films under oil films. A wide range of mediums are also available, allowing you to modify the characteristics of your tube colour e.g. consistency, gloss, drying rate and texture.
The Winton range of colours have a uniform consistency which retains excellent brush and knife stroke textures.
