Welcome to dickblick
Combined with more than 170 years of manufacturing and quality control expertise, the formulation of Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Color ensures the best raw materials are made into the world’s finest colors. Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Color is unmatched for its purity, quality, and reliability — a success that is reflected in its worldwide reputation among professional artists.
Winsor & Newton uses only the purest of pigments in the manufacture of its Artists' Oil Color line, ensuring the cleanest, brightest colors, which in turn produce the best color mixtures. Maximum quality control throughout all stages of production, plus the selection of the most suitable drying oils and pigment dispersion methods, ensure that each color's properties are preserved.
The Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Color range offers a wide and balanced spectrum of 120 colors in a variety of sizes. Each color has been specially selected to offer the greatest choice and flexibility, ensuring that artists obtain a palette that is best suited to their work.
Winsor & Newton's quality standards include the use of single pigments wherever possible to create individual colors. Combined with strength of color, single pigments provide a wide color range in themselves and offer cleaner, brighter mixtures with an infinite range of hues. This is particularly important for greens, violets, and oranges. There are 80 single pigment colors in the Artists' Oil Color range.
Winsor & Newton has also developed permanent alternatives for the less durable traditional colors, without compromising the handling properties consistent with oil paints. Of the 120 colors in the Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Color range, 119 are now classified as "permanent for artists' use," which aids the longevity of paintings. Although Alizarin Crimson is only given a "B" rating (moderately durable), it has been part of the Artists' Oil Color range for more than 130 years and is still considered a key color by many contemporary artists.
Because every Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Color contains the maximum pigment consistent with good handling qualities, it achieves the optimum tinting strength when reduced with White. Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Colors remain soft and wet for several days, allowing ample time for rework. All colors become touch-dry in thin films within 2 to 12 days.

Colors are true and consistant
WN gold and bronze oil paints
By Len Guini
As a painter of still life and landscapes, I often find the need for a decent gold color that will not only be realistic, but have the ability to be darkened and lightened without losing tone. Windsor Newton has been my main choice in colors not only because they have reliable and consistent products but also because of the value and quality. These colors are semi-transparent and mix well with other colors. They've given me the desired effect in my paintings adn I can say that I'd definitely purchase these colors again as well as any other Wn products.
French table Easel
The French table easel for painters is remarkably nice. The wood is finished well and very smooth. It sets up easily and adjusts to the angle one needs to paint. The drawer and metal linings are very nice and it folds and goes into an over the shoulder bag for easy transport. I cannot say enough nice things about the product and the price made it a great deal. Love it !!!!!!

Windsor and newton oils
By Vroni the artist
from Terrell Texas
These paints I find are far superior to any others, as they are so vibrant flow beautifully and have such a lovely texture to work with. This means little or no medium is required. The paint is easy to clean from the brushes. I clean the paint off with tissue then dunk them in baby oil for a few seconds after which I wash them in warm soapy water.I would recommend using these to anyone.

Still the best paint out there
By Old school grisaille
Windsor and Newton by far has the best selection of colors to choose from and actually brakes down the chemical composition the best when you buy whites you should know whats in it unlike other brands there's no guessing that's something these other so called fancy art companies with there fancy prices should look into before just saying they hand grind there pigments...Windsor and Newton still the best
