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.
Shipping Note — Due to manufacturer distribution restrictions, Winsor & Newton products cannot be shipped to addresses outside of North America.

Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Colors - Best Oil Paints
By Debra Hope
from Cape Cod, MA
I've been using Winsor & Newton's Artists' Oil Colors professionally and since I was a student at PA Academy of the Fine Arts a very long time ago. Their oils have not changed and the high quality of their oils certainly is extraordinary and I will continue to use them professionally for all of my paintings in oils.

W&N are the Best Oils
from North Garden, VA
Colors are vibrant.
GREAT OILS AT A GREAT PRICE
from Burlington, NC
I have worked as a professional faux finisher and muralist for the laast 28 years. I've tried other artist oils but always come back to Winsor Newton because the intensity of color and flow are excellent. Other oils cost more but they don't deliver any more than Winsor Newton. Note that I am NOT reviewing Winton Oils, also made by Winsor Newton. Those are sub-standard in my view.

Great prices large selection of oil paints
from whitefish, mt
The colors are so nice and there is just enough oil to make the color spread nicely with out adding to it much, Always consistent.
Consistently high quality: brilliant pigments, perfect feel
By Roadhouse Jaguar
The pigments are brilliant, and the paint feels smooth under the brush without being too oily. W&N oil paints, to me, have always had a unique feel to them--a great achievement in the industry. Also, they still produce a flake white for the market, which is very courageous of them in today's social environment.
Winsor & Newton Burnt Sienna
from Katy, Texas
I like Winsor & Newton Burnt Sienna because it doesn't dry out as fast as other brands. Usually by the end of the day of painting other products are already dry. I don't like to waste paint because it is an ongoing cost. Now this paint will last longer.
