Winsor & Newton Water Colour Mediums is a collection of mediums designed to enhance the creations of artists working with water colour, such as Winsor & Newton’s Cotman and Artist Watercolour ranges. Slowing the drying time of paint, Winsor & Newton Gum Arabic increases the brilliancy, gloss, and transparency of Watercolour, giving greater depth to each colour.
What is a Medium?
Any liquid which changes the consistency of the paint it is mixed with may be classed as a medium. Artistic style and technique influence the choice of medium used, so Winsor & Newton provide a range of Water Colour Mediums to assist the artist working with Water Colour.
Why use a Medium?
Choosing complementary mediums for water colours is as unique as choosing a colour palette. By changing the properties of paint, a medium extends the possibilities of how an artist works with the colour, and affords a plethora of exciting techniques and effects.
Winsor & Newton Mediums Finder provides an easy, interactive method of choosing the correct medium, for the artist to achieve the desired effect.
Why choose Winsor & Newton Gum Arabic?
A pale coloured solution, Winsor & Newton Gum Arabic reduces staining, and can be used to control colour spread when painting wet-on-wet. This watercolour medium can be thinned with water.
