The founders of the company William Winsor and Henry Newton, introduced moist Watercolours in the 1830’s. Since then Winsor & Newton have been proud of their reputation for supreme quality. Artists’ Watercolours are made from the finest pigments available in the highest concentrations possible, consistent with good handling qualities.
Winsor & Newton Professional Watercolour, formally known as Artists' Watercolour, is available in 96 colours in tubes or pans.
Generally tube colours are preferred by artists using large quantities of colour, whilst pans find favour with outdoor sketchers and artists using smaller quantities of colour.
