Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Colour 37ml Davy's Gray
Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Colour Davy's Gray is a semi-transparent soft grey color that traditionally includes powdered slate pigments. It is mixed with linseed/safflower oil and is an extremely permanent color with excellent lightfastness. It was developed by Winsor & Newton for the 19th c English artist Henry Davy, a pupil of famous water-colourist J S Cotman.
Every tube of Artists' Oil Paint contains a calculated ratio of oil and pigment based on the quantity of oil in the tube. This varies from color to color because, just as some pigments need to be ground finer than others, they also need more, or less, oil to provide optimal performance.
Pigment Color Code: PBk19 / PBk7 / PY42
