Welcome to dickblick
Unrivalled in brilliance, Winsor & Newton Professional Acrylics are made with the highest quality, maximum-strength pigments to ensure clean, strong colors with wonderful working properties. Their revolutionary transparent binder virtually eliminates color shift from wet to dry, eliminating guesswork and letting acrylic painters make the most of spontaneous, direct painting techniques.
Brilliance (defined as the richness, intensity, and depth of a color) is possibly the most important quality to look for in an acrylic paint. Winsor & Newton Professional Acrylics are unsurpassed in this regard. This becomes evident when you apply these colors straight from tube to canvas, as well when executing thin films and glazes. Even the earth tones, blacks, and whites are clean and never dull.
Each individual color In the Professional Acrylic line uses the maximum amount of pigment possible — without extenders — to produce a brilliant paint with the broadest handling properties and outstanding color-mixing capabilities.
Winsor & Newton's expertise in resin technology has resulted in a unique binder that is translucent when wet and dries clear — ensuring virtually no shift in color, and colors that remain as brilliant when dry as they are when wet. The result is a range that allows artists to match colors more easily from palette to canvas and see a painting as it will actually look when finished.
Tubes are available in 60 ml and 200 ml sizes. 237 ml jars are also available.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.
Shipping Note — Due to manufacturer distribution restrictions, Winsor & Newton products cannot be shipped to addresses outside of North America.

Comments about Winsor & Newton Artists' Acrylics:
I usually use Golden Fluid acrylics, but WN had a pigment I wanted - Azo Yellow Deep (PY65) - to complete a limited palette I wanted to worth with that includes anthraquinone blue, anthraquinone red (Graham has it), raw umber, benzidine orange (PO13 Red Orange from Holbein), and yellow ochre. First, this is the perfect yellow for these pigments. It looks horrific (schoolbus yellow) until you start working with it. It makes a fabulous glowing gold in a glaze and good greens with anthraquinone blue. I didn't realize I was getting the big tube, but that's fine, because it also makes a good ground if you are going to paint over with cool tones. It is buttery and dissolves well in a bit dip of water to which Flow Aid has been added. I will keep my eye out for other WN tube colors when they go on sale. I highly recommend the anthraquinone palette I've described if you paint night scenes or stormy skies of if you just want a moodier alternative to an ultramarine blue palette.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Winsor Newton quality and reliability
from Charlotte NC
Winsor Newton has never failed me. I mostly paint in oils, but needed some acrylic for a recent project. Very pleased.
from Boston MA
Consistency is thicker than other brands. I like the liquin additive that makes it looser and shines.
Can't go wrong with Winsor and Newton!
By Bobtail Kat
from Prescott, Arizona
This brand of paint doesn't need my endorsement. Artists know, already, the good quality of Winsor and Newton. It's a little pricey but I've found some colors I love that I can't get anywhere else.

Yea for Winsor Newton "professional" acrylic paint
from Orange, CA
Using Winsor Newton "Professional" acrylic paints makes painting more successful! It works on all kinds of surfaces and it is a "dream" to paint with. I have used it on canvas, paper, poster board, wood and metal among other media. I highly recommend it for beginners and professional artists, as well.

The first time I used these acrylics I was amazed at the intensity of the colors compared to others that I have used in the past. They mix very well with the Mediums and gels with little or no color shift as well. Plus the glazes created to add more color layers are great. I have been able to achieve fantastic realistic textures with these products.
Fabulous Acrylic Paint

Outstanding paint. The color, the consistency, and the coverage are great!
Reliable pigments... Good spectrum balance.
from Winchester, VA
Professional grade full-body are what I use and they are consistent and reliable. They do not flood the product range with tons of misleading popular formulations/mixes. They respect the ability of their product to work well in the hands of reasonably competent artists. Having said that, I also use other very fine lines of acrylic pigments as well as a range of convenience mixes that W & N may not have. When buying a range of pigments within a certain spectrum of hue... I tend to go with that pigment manufacturer for those two or three pigments. W & N shows good spectral balance.
