Winsor & Newton Artist’s Watercolors have been around since 1832 and since that time they have been producing some of the finest watercolor paint known to man. Winsor & Newton currently offers 96 beautiful colors in their line and a lot of these are single pigment colors, and with single pigment colors, you get brighter and cleaner mixes. Winsor & Newton Artists’ Watercolors are also slightly resistant to re-wetting. This makes it easier to lay washes and glazes on top of one another without your colors getting muddied.
In this video, the folks over at Dick Blick Art Materials discuss the differences between the Winsor & Newton Artist’s Watercolor that is available in both tubes and pans. There is most certainly a difference and this video will help you decide which kind of watercolor paint is best suited for your particular watercolor painting needs.
Both the pans and tubes are professional grade paints. Both have both pigment and the gum arabic binder but there are some differences.
