PROFESSIONAL WATER COLOUR NAPLES YELLOW
Winsor & Newton Artists' Professional Watercolours offer the widest choice of pigments and the highest possible performance. Since 1832 Artists' Watercolour continues to be formulated and manufactured according to its founding principles; to create an unparalleled water colour range which offers artists the widest and most balanced choice of pigments with the greatest possible permanence.
The transparency of the Professional Water Colour is achieved by W&N’s unique process of pigment dispersion during manufacture. The natural characteristics of each pigment highlights the paint’s transparency level. In water colour painting, thin washes are applied allowing the white of the paper to reflect through the wash.
Naples Yellow is an opaque pinkish-yellow pigment. Originally a lead antimonite pigment, it can be found in Babylon tiles dating 5th c BC. Its name comes from natural deposits found in Mount Vesuvius, Naples. Used by the Old Masters, it has been made artificially since the 15th c.
