Since 1835, Winsor & Newton has created an unparalleled watercolour range which offers artists the widest and most balanced choice of pigments with the greatest possible permanence. Each colour has been selected and formulated to offer the greatest choice using 79 modern and traditional single colour pigments. Portable and air dry, with half pans there is no need to dispose of any unused paint. They are invaluable when working outside or when needing to work quickly. Simply lift colour with a wet brush. Individual half pans are of standard size and compatible with most half pan watercolour palette cases.
A synthetic lake pigment from the Madder plant, Alizarin Crimson was the first natural dye to be synthesised in 1868. It is a deep transparent red with a blueish undertone.
