Painting with watercolors on a large scale is becoming increasingly popular, as more and more artists experiment with the fascinating versatility of watercolors to create larger, more dramatic paintings.
As a result, Winsor & Newton has created Professional Watercolor Large Pans, an innovation that offers artists a completely new format with which to paint. The large pans measure
Winsor & Newton Large Pans are perfect with larger-sized brushes for creating broad, flowing washes. For generous areas of color, such as skies, the larger size offers an immediacy and speed not possible with smaller pans.
The larger format also allows artists to enjoy the different strengths of wash that come naturally to the tube and pan variants of each color. Tube colors immediately make stronger washes, while pans need to be worked with to build up the strength of the wash. Using the large pan rather than diluting a tube wash is more convenient, especially since the paler wash is required first.
Another benefit of using large pans is a reduced risk of contamination between pans.
