One of Winsor & Newton’s range of Professional Water Colours, Winsor Blue (Green Shade) has an intense blue depth, which approaches black in mass tone, with a green undertone. Part of the Six Colour Mixing System, it mixes very well with other colours (although care should be taken not to let it overpower) and when thinned, can be used for glazing with great effect. It is stable, intense and insolvable except in sulphuric acids.

What is pigment Phthalocyanine?
Winsor Blue is made of an organic synthetic pigment: copper phthalocyanine. The phthalocyanine family of colours were first chemically synthesized in the late 1920s. Having a high lightfastness rating, the paint will stay permanent and not fade or change over time, giving artists reassurance and confidence their work will remain as fresh as the day it was created.
What is the Six Colour Mixing System?
For artists wanting to explore the colour theory of painting, Winsor & Newton’s Six Colour Mixing System, recommends a primary colour selection of Winsor Lemon, Winsor Yellow, French Ultramarine, Winsor Blue (Green Shade), Permanent Rose and Scarlet Lake.
When only three colours are used, Winsor & Newton advise Winsor Lemon, Winsor Blue (Red Shade) and Permanent Rose as the best selection of primary colours.

Which brushes are best for Water Colour painting?
Water Colour painting requires the brush to hold large amounts of water and paint. Natural hair brushes, particularly Red Sable brushes, tend to be favoured by artists working with Water Colour. With a middle body able to hold a good reservoir of colour, Sable hair has excellent spring and resilience. The hairs are particularly strong at the brush’s fine tip, allowing the brush to be used both delicately and aggressively. Advancements in the production of synthetic hair have resulted in a rise in popularity of Synthetic Water Colour Brushes, especially if price and durability are an issue.
