Colour Chart: Winton Oil Colours

What is Oil Colour?

Oil colour is produced by the combination of a pigment with a natural oil binder, such as linseed, walnut and poppy oils. This is then applied to a support such as canvas. The pigment fixes to the support upon dehydration and oxidation of the oil, forming a hard film on the surface.

Oil colours are oil-based, so any brush used to apply the oil colour paint should be thoroughly cleaned after use with either a solvent or brush cleaner.

The following videos show different ways of cleaning oil colour paint brushes:

Why use Oil Colour?

Oil colour dries slowly, offering artists flexibility and time to make modifications. The slow drying properties of oil colour means they are excellent for creating subtle blends, affording the artist smooth transitions in their painting.

How long does Oil Colour take to dry?

Oil colour tends to become touch dry in 2-12 days. However, every pigment reacts differently when mixed with oil, resulting in varying drying times. It is important to know the drying times of the oil colours used, so that slower-drying oil colour is painted over faster-drying layers, in order to avoid cracking. Winsor & Newton provide further information on Understanding The Drying Times For Oil Colour.

There are a number of ways that the drying times of oil colours may be altered. Adding Winsor & Newton Liquin Original increases the drying rate by approximately 50%, whereas introducing a Painting Medium will change the rate of drying, as well as influencing the gloss and texture of the colour. Winsor & Newton offer some useful Tips For Using Oil Paint Mediums.

How do “Hue” colours differ from other oil colours?

Designed to closely resemble the spectrum of natural oil colour pigments, “Hue” oil colour offers a quality, affordable alternative. A high level of pigmentation is achieved by the use of moderately priced pigments, rather than reducing the pigment load. Influenced by the pigments used, the sheen of Winton Oil Colour may vary in gloss level across the range. This can be addressed by the addition of solvent or medium.

How does Oil Colour compare to Acrylic paint?

The main difference between Oil Colour and Acrylic paint is their drying times; Oil Colour dries very slowly, allowing the artist a longer working time, whereas Acrylic dries incredibly quickly. Much depends on how the artist prefers to work, and the effects they wish to create. The following link provides a more detailed comparison of the two media.

Guide To The Key Differences Between Oil Colour And Acrylic Paint

Which surfaces best support Oil Colour?

An important factor for the artist to consider when Choosing A Surface For Oil Painting is where they will be painting. Cotton or Linen canvas is ideal for studio work, whereas a Canvas Board or Canvas Pad may be more suitable when working outdoors.

Which brushes are best for Oil Colour painting?

Oil Colour painting requires the brush to have stiff bristles, with enough resilience to control and manipulate the colour. Providing good flow and texture, the stiffness of Hog Brush bristles makes them particularly well suited to oil painting.

Advancements in the production of synthetic hair have resulted in a rise in popularity of synthetic brushes, especially if price and durability are an issue. Originally designed for working with Acrylic paint, many artists have found Pro Arte’s Acrylix range of synthetic brushes ideal for painting with oil colour.

Oil colour painting can often entail working at a distance from the paint surface. In these circumstances, a long handled brush offers the perfect solution.

Palette Knives are another tool invaluable to the artist working with oil colour, and choosing a softer bristle brush from our range of Oil Paint Brushes is a further option, when working with thinned oil colour.

The smaller tubes of Winton seem to be far less oily and more concentrated than the larger tubes. I always have a lot of problems with the lids eventually breaking or being difficult to put back on when the screw thread becomes caked in oil paint. I need to remember to wipe it off before I put the lid back on, but I always manage to forget!

I ordered these paints to cover a very large canvas as they are economical. I have to say that I am pleased with the quality of the colours and the coverage. It's a reasonable way to cover a very large area. An artist quality could go over if a richer depth of colour is required but I am perfectly happy with what I have used.
