Each colour within this wide and balanced spectrum of colours, has been selected and formulated to offer the greatest choice so that artists can use a unique palette that best suits their work.
Since 1832 when Henry Newton and William Winsor introduced the first moist water colours to the world, much of our reputation for supreme quality has stemmed from the Artists' Water Colour range.
Since then Artists' Water Colour continues to be formulated and manufactured according to our founding principles; to create an unparalleled water colour range which offers artists the widest and most balanced choice of pigments with the greatest possible permanence.
An excellent product but I do not like the "new" tube design, it is very difficult to identify or differentiate between similar colours, ie cobolt blue and french ultramarine etc. etc. Ray Carter (Colchester, United Kingdom) on 2 Dec 2013
When painting, it is annoying to have to examine the tubes so carefully in order to read the name of the colours. The small, black print on silver is very difficult to read. Gitte Muller (Copenhagen Ø, Denmark) on 15 Sep 2014
Ken Bromley's replies: We agree and W&N are making new tubes with slightly bigger names. We have added labels with the colour name and number onto virtually all our 5ml tubes.
W&N watercolours are my favourite paints and I have been using them for many years BUT I really don't like the new packaging. I can barely read the label and the little smear of colour on the front isn't enough for me to identify it quickly, when rummaging in my boxes. What on earth was wrong with the old labels?
