Unrivalled color brilliance and no color shift from wet to dry!
Brilliance can be defined as the richness, intensity and depth of the color. Winsor & Newton research showed that this is the most important characteristic to an acrylic artist. Consequently, in the development of Artists' Acrylics, Winsor & Newton has used their world-beating color making experience to ensure an unrivalled brilliance and depth of color in the range.
Brilliance does not mean the colors are garish. It is about clarity and purity of color and this should be evident when the color is applied straight from the tube as well as in the thinnest of films. Even the earths, blacks and whites should be clean and not dull.

Tips for working with Color Palettes.
Artists' Acrylic consists of 80 colors spread across the widest palette, using single artists' pigments wherever possible. Colors are chosen according to mass tone (color from tube), undertone (bias of color when in a thin film), strength and relative opacity. The resultant color spectrum ensures that artists can obtain the palette which best suits their work.
Recommended Color Palettes
Winsor & Newton recommended basic palette for Artists' Acrylic: Lemon Yellow, Azo Yellow Medium, Cadmium Red Light, Permanent Rose, Permanent Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue, Phthalo Blue Green Shade, Phthalo Green Blue Shade, Raw Umber, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna and Titanium White.
If you want to use just three primary colors we suggest Azo Yellow Medium, Phthalo Blue Red Shade and Permanent Rose.
For a six color mixing system Winsor & Newton recommends the following colors; Lemon Yellow, Azo Yellow Deep, Phthalo Blue Green Shade, Ultramarine Blue, Pyrrole Red and Quinacridone Magenta.
Restricted color palettes are used by both beginners and serious painters to develop their understanding and use of color. The additional colors recommended in the basic palette introduce a wider range of tones and greater variation in opacity and tinting strength.
