Artists' Oil Colour is unmatched for its purity, quality and reliability - a success which is reflected in its world-wide reputation amongst professional artists. It has 120 colours in the range, offering the widest spectrum of all the Winsor & Newton oil ranges.
Good professional paint with a decent pigment loading. I use these paints to create a limited pallet, mixing complementaries to create black and greys, largely for commissioned portraits. Alizarin Crimson and Winsor Green (the latter not available in the larger tubes. Why?) make a great black. Likewise Cadmium Red and Winsor Blue (the latter also not available in large tubes. Why?). Decent enough range of colours but could do with a few more basic primaries and secondaries in the 200ml. Often tubes arrive dented through the post given their weight and size. Fast service overall though!! Alastair Adams PRP (Oakham, United Kingdom) on 15 Aug 2012
These paints are consistently good, no surprises there and it really comes down to price comparisons. KB is as good as anyone so worth topping up oil paint supplies when ordering other products. John W (Devon) on 21 Jul 2012
I use a lot of this colour but only Windsor and Newton produce the 'real thing'. Pity they don't package it in a tub. Patricia Cottew De Duarri (Altrincham, United Kingdom) on 5 Jul 2012
